Dear Wonderful Patron of Leddy,
For over 40 years Leddy Center has been an integral part of Epping and the surrounding communities by entertaining audiences with fantastic shows and concerts. Leddy Center also provides top notch arts education programming for our area youth. We offer private lessons and classes in a wide variety of disciplines including voice, piano, guitar, and musical theater. We also offer wonderful summer camps in voice and musical theatre!
Our 43rd Season begins in March with Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple.” In July we will be presenting one of America’s all time favorite family Broadway musicals, whose name we are not yet able to announce due to it being on national tour! In September Mary Gatchell and her NYC band will return for her exciting annual show! In October/November we will be present the very popular Broadway Musical Roald Dahl’s “Willy Wonka”. To close Season 2017, it’s the timeless classic Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.
Most people know that public television must purchase the rights to the fabulous shows that they show, but did you know that Leddy Center must also purchase the rights to the plays and Broadway shows that we present each season? The cost of purchasing these rights for the amazing shows like those in our 2017 season, have steadily risen year after year. This year the rights for The Odd Couple, our Summer Broadway musical, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka and A Christmas Carol will cost nearly $18,000!
Other theaters, even non-profit theaters like Leddy Center, would raise their ticket prices to help cover these costs but Leddy Center believes that theater, like all the arts, should be accessible by everyone in our community. In the past ten years the cost of a ticket to a Leddy Show has increased by just two dollars and the cost of our Musical Theater classes and private lessons in piano, voice and guitar has remained the same!! But we need your help! Won't you, our loyal audience member and long-time supporter, help Leddy Center cover the cost of producing our wonderful line-up of Broadway shows in 2017? Your donation will directly and positively impact the social and cultural fabric of our community. We hope you feel as we do, that the Arts are an important part of our greater community and that Leddy Center contributes to making this area a wonderful place to live!
If you wish to make a contribution, please mail a check made out to Leddy Center, PO Box 929, Epping, NH 03042. If you would prefer to make a donation with a credit card you may go to our website www.leddycenter.org, and click on the annual appeal button! Everyone who makes a contribution will be acknowledged on a very special poster in the lobby of the theater throughout the 2017 season.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Leddy Board of Directors
