    Thursday, August 31, 2017- Trip to Goodspeed Opera House to watch “Oklahoma”

    First, enjoy a delicious lunch at the Olive Garden (lunch on your own).  Following lunch, a short ride will bring you to the beautiful Goodspeed Opera House for the delightful musical Oklahoma!  Set along the tranquil Connecticut River, the Goodspeed Opera House was built in 1876 by William Goodspeed.  This intimate theater brings you closer to the excitement of live musicals and will delight, inspire and entertain you with their shows!

    Oklahoma ~ The Rodgers & Hammerstein classic that changed American musicals forever dawns at Goodspeed for the very first time.  Cowboy Curly and farm girl Laurey are taking their sweet time falling in love. Can these stubborn romantics admit their feelings before it’s too late?  Passion, laughter and high-kicking choreography blossom in a land where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain.  A legendary score—including “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “The Surrey With the Fringe on Top” and the rousing title tune “Oklahoma”—will put you in a brand new state!
