On Friday, September 24th, the Goodspeed Opera House will reopen its doors with Rodgers and Hammerstein’s A Grand Night for Singing. We will celebrate our reopening with the Goodspeed Gala, aptly titled “A Grand Night for Goodspeed.” The funds raised at this year’s gala will be used to support Goodspeed’s reopening and recovery from the financial effects of the pandemic.
One of the most popular parts of the Gala is a Silent Auction and YOU can participate through BiddingOwl, the Pre-Event Bidding process. You will want to be sure to check out the wonderful selection of gifts and experiences donated by theatres, area businesses and Goodspeed friends. You are sure to find something that you just can’t live without!
You can also make a tax-deductible gift on this site to support Goodspeed’s daily operations through the Footlights Fund or become a Goodspeed member and enjoy your benefits from now through the end of the 2022 season!
Bidding Owl will be open for bids from Tuesday, September 14 at 10:00am to Wednesday, September 22 at 5:00pm. In order to place a pre-bid, register for a BiddingOwl account by clicking on the "Register" button, located in the upper-right corner on this page. Upon registration, you will have the option to receive email notifications if you have been outbid. If there is something you absolutely have to have don’t worry - each item also has a “Buy Now” price.
The final pre-bid on each item will be transferred to the bid sheets at the Gala where the bidding will continue until the closing of the silent auction at 7:30pm on September 24. If you are the highest bidder when the online pre-bidding closes on Wednesday, September 22, you will be contacted to discuss proxy bidding options at the Gala. If you are the winning bidder after the auction closes on Friday, September 24, you will be contacted on Monday. Payment from the winning bidder will be required at that time.
Please note that item numbers 101 to 110 are available for online bidding ONLY. If you are the highest bidder for any of these items when this site closes on Wednesday, September 22, you will be the winning bidder.
All items must be picked up at Goodspeed Musicals by October 8 (unless alternative arrangements have been made). Additional shipping costs may apply if your item requires shipping. Goodspeed Musicals is located at: 6 Main Street, East Haddam, CT 06423.
Any items not paid for or picked up will be offered to the next highest bidder.
