    What is it about? Using the same plot as the longer play, the musical version of The Good Years is a delight. The 12 original songs are uncomplicated melodies which are easily sung, reflecting the feelings of older people. You’ll find soulful tunes, charming waltzes, and hysterical comedic romps. You’ll especially enjoy She Makes Me Feel So Young, I Never Thought I’d Feel This Way Again, and Is It All Right with You?  Listen to the music, read the script, and you’ll discover that this is the perfect show for both your cast and your audience!

    What are they saying about the show?

    • The musical was an absolute delight. It was charming, witty, and captured so many senior moments, all to great tunes. What a wonderful night of theatre. Chuck Miller, Sun Lakes AZ
    • “The Good Years” was fun, easy to pull together, had strong characters with a great plot. Never did I hear a single audience member say a bad thing about it–they all loved and enjoyed it! Eileen G.
