The Leddy Center

The Board of Directors of the Leddy Center for the Performing Arts is delighted to announce a celebration of the past 43 years of wonderful theater at the Leddy Center.  In a presentation of photos, videos, stories, and live musical performances (by Mary Gatchell and others), we will look back at the 157 productions and the many people who made the Leddy Center such a great success over all those years.  We will celebrate all those who worked on stage and backstage, who sewed the costumes and served the refreshments, and who served as sponsors to make it all possible.  And we will especially honor the creators of the Leddy Center, Elaine and Bruce Gatchell, for their excellence and dedication, as we wish them a joyous retirement.

The celebration will take place on Sunday, May 20th, at 2:00 pm at the Leddy Center theater on Ladd’s Lane.  Specialty desserts from Popovers, Bruce’s famous popcorn, and coffee, compliments of Starbucks, will be served at intermission.  Each ticket will come with a limited-edition Leddy Center T-shirt, listing all of the 157 shows that Elaine and Bruce have put on over the past 43 years.

To purchase tickets by credit card, please visit our website To pay by check, please visit the box office on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 3:00 and 5:00 pm. This is a one-time event, and seats are very limited, so please order your tickets as soon as possible.

We hope to see you for this final celebration of all that is the Leddy Center!!

Dr. Henry Ferrell, Chair, Board of Directors
