Goodspeed Musicals Sets Food Drive for 11/19

On Monday, November 19, Goodspeed Musicals will hold their Annual Food Drive to benefit the East Haddam Food Bank. Goodspeed will be collecting donations in the hopes that they will have another record-breaking year for participation. The need is even greater this year as the number of households served by the East Haddam Food Bank has grown once again to record levels.

Goodspeed Musicals is offering a special buy one ticket, get one free to patrons who bring a generous donation of non-perishable foods to the November 19th 2:00 matinee or the 7:30 p.m. performance of Something’s Afoot  at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam  OR the 7:30 p.m. performance of The Great American Mousical at The Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn.

The East Haddam Food Bank is in need of many non-perishable food items, especially “the basics” such as soups, pastas, canned fruits and vegetables, and cereals, as well as paper goods and personal toiletries.

“This holiday season the Goodspeed family acknowledges the tremendous need right here in our community,” explains Michael P. Price, “we encourage all of our visitors to participate in this wonderful opportunity to share with our neighbors in the spirit of giving.”  

During Thanksgiving week, performances will take place on Monday, November 19, at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm; Friday, November 23, at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm; Saturday, November 24, at 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm; and Sunday, November 25, at 2:00 pm and 6:30 pm.  Donations will be accepted at both venues through November 25th.   Tickets for Something’s Afoot and The Great American Mousical including the food drive performances are available through the Goodspeed Box Office at 860.873.8668 or at Advance reservations are recommended.
