Letchworth Arcadians have been entertaining audiences in the area for over 50 years. Formed in 1952 they have made their 'home' in the Norton Community Centre in Letchworth Garden City. Their major shows were initially staged at St Francis Theatre in Letchworth. In 1978 they made the move to the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage, where they now perform two musicals a year. Currently Rodgers' and Hammerstein's Carousel is being staged until November 7. This will be followed in the Spring by Crazy For You with music and lyrics by the Gershwins.

They also have a thriving youth section, the Young Arcadians, founded in 1979. The Young Arcadians stage productions annually at the Plinston Hall in Letchworth GC and will be performing Thoroughly Modern Millie in February half term, 2010.

In recent years Letchworth Arcadians and Young Arcadians are proud to have received, between them, no fewer than 9 awards for best productions from the National Operatic and Dramatic Association.
