Green Room Series

The Green Room Series is a select array of donor events, unique opportunities to hear from Goodman artists and meet fellow donors. Some examples of our Green Room Series offerings

Noon Salon

An enriching experience that furthers patron understanding of the Goodman’s productions, Noon Salons are an exclusive benefit for our donors at the Cast Member level and above. Twice each season, donors are invited to take part in an insightful discussion with members of the cast, artistic and production teams of a current main stage production. Afterward, guests enjoy a complimentary buffet lunch served in the Goodman Lobby.

Noon Salons are available only to donors at the Cast Member level ($50) and above and Spotlight Society members.

Annual Season Celebration

A kick-off to the new season as well as a behind-the-scenes look at Goodman Theatre, the Annual Season Celebration is an exclusive event for our donors at the Star level or higher. Beginning with a lively cocktail and appetizer reception, guests have an opportunity to hear from members of the Goodman’s Artistic Collective about the exciting new season ahead. Afterward, guests receive a backstage tour to learn about the history of the Goodman’s facility and the work behind each Goodman production.

The Annual Season Celebration is available only to donors at the Star Level ($500) and above and Spotlight Society members.

The Celebrity Series

A grouping of intimate events geared towards inquisitive minds, the Celebrity Series gives donors an exciting look into the process of taking a play from the page to the stage.
