The Leddy Center

Elaine and Bruce Gatchell, who founded Leddy Center for the Performing Arts 43 years ago, have announced that they will retire at the end of this year.

It has been so wonderful to have the Leddy Center and the very special talents of Elaine and Bruce here in Epping for these 43 years. Losing the Leddy Center will leave a huge hole in Epping and we will greatly miss it and all the Gatchells have done to make it so special.

Leddy Center will present its final musical, Roald Dahl’s family musical “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” from October 20th through November 5th.  The final production at the Leddy Center will be everyone’s favorite Christmas classic, Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” on stage from December 1st through 10th.

Although "A Christmas Carol" will be Leddy's final main stage show, Leddy Center School will continue to offer musical theater classes and private lessons in guitar, voice, and piano through April of 2018. 

Individual tickets are $20 and are available online at or by calling the Leddy box office at 679-2781, Monday through Friday, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Call the box office for information on our group rates. Leddy Center is located on Ladd’s Lane, off Route 27, in Epping, NH, is air conditioned for your comfort and is fully accessible.
