Backstage Tour: The Bushnell invites Silver donors (and above) to take a peek behind the curtain. From the spotlight and projection room to the star’s dressing room, you’ll learn about what it takes to pull off a touring production and get the scoop on some of the big celebrities who have graced our stages. Donors at the Platinum level and above can even schedule a private backstage tour for up to 15 people.
Celebration of Giving: Each year we recognize Bushnell donors at the Platinum level and above with a dinner. Learn how you can get your invite, today!
Load-in & Lunch: Donors are invited to join us as we host members of the cast, crew or production team from the shows on our stages. This is your opportunity to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to know about being part of a Broadway touring show and life on the road
Season Announcement Event: Be the first to know of the shows that will be hitting Bushnell stages in the upcoming season and enjoy sneak peek performances from those who make these shows possible.
Bushnell Broadway Bus Trips: Hit the road for an unforgettable New York City experience! Hosted from time to time by our Development team, a typical Bushnell Bus Trip package includes round trip luxury coach transportation, a continental breakfast, lunch near the theater, show ticket, and beverages and snacks for the return trip to Hartford. Each package may vary. Access to the tours is a benefit of membership at the Gold level or above. Trip prices vary, based on show, menu, and transportation expense.
