The Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam was built in 1876 by William Goodspeed for his shipping and banking business and to provide a venue for his love of theatre. It has attracted visitors from all over Connecticut including Westport, CT & Fairfield, CT. After Goodspeed’s death, the opera house went from serving as a militia base during World War I to a general store to a storage depot for the State of Connecticut Highway Department. 

In 1959, Goodspeed Musicals restored the building, and the Goodspeed Opera House was rededicated in 1963. Goodspeed has achieved international acclaim as the home of musical theatre.
