The Herald Bulletin

---- — EAST HADDAM, Conn. — “The Circus in Winter,” a musical that was originally developed at Ball State University by students participating in the spring 2010 Virginia C. Ball seminar led by Beth Turcotte, will get new life this fall in Connecticut.

Goodspeed’s ninth annual Festival of New Musicals, the two-time Tony Award-winning theater, announced plans for the production of the new musical.

Featuring a book by Turcotte and Hunter Foster and music and lyrics by Ben Clark, “The Circus in Winter” is inspired by the acclaimed novel of the same name by Cathy Day. The production will run this fall at The Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn., Goodspeed’s home for new musicals.
