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.










Mary Gatchell and her New York City Band will perform their final concert at Leddy on Friday, September 29th. As a special added attraction, students from Leddy’s summer camps will be on stage with Mary, singing the song they composed at camp this summer. In October, Leddy Center will present Roald Dahl’s family musical “Willy Wonka” 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,” from December 1st to 10th.

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.
