It may be June, but winter is coming to Letchworth…
Two Letchworth producers are bringing the first show of their fledgling theatre company to Broadway Theatre on 4 June, the final performance of their UK tour.
Samantha Lyden and Sally Reichardt, who run Pigtail Productions, both grew up in the area and attended local schools including Lordship, Pixmore and St Christopher. Now they are coming home to Letchworth to present The Tap Dancing Mermaid featuring a mix of hand-crafted puppets and original live music.
With the first season of live shows at Broadway Theatre heading towards the final act, it’s time to start looking ahead to some of the fantastic acts coming to Broadway Theatre over the summer. Our Creative Programmer, Sue Scott Davison tells us more about what’s coming up…
Hi friends and theatre goers,
Two months ago today, the Broadway Theatre opened its doors for the first time for a wonderful performance of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice (I can’t believe it’s been two months already!.) With a number of great shows still to come as part of the first season, our Creative Programmer Sue Scott Davison tells us more about what we have to look forward to.
Stage adaptation of David Walliams book to visit Letchworth
The premier theatre production based on The First Hippo on the Moon, an original children’s book from best-selling author comic actor David Walliams, is set to visit Broadway Theatre on 10-11 April.
With the Broadway Theatre opening its doors for live theatre last month, creative programmer Sue Scott Davison takes a look back at some of the highlights from the last month, as well as previewing some of the excellent shows still to come this season.
As the Broadway Theatre prepares to open its doors for its first season, our very own Sue Scott Davison tells us more about an exciting opportunity for Letchworth’s aspiring performers.
Sue here, Creative Programmer for the Broadway Theatre. We are very excited to be opening the Broadway Theatre next month and are already thinking about how we can give local groups and artistes the opportunity to take to the stage.

You may already know me, Jason Valentine, I am the Venues Manager for the Heritage Foundation, and you will often see me with my team at the Broadway. Well, what a year 2016 has been – we had an amazing 80th birthday celebration in August, and we want to say a big thank you to all our customers for patiently bearing with us while all the hard work has been going on behind the scenes building the new theatre.
Ladies and gentleman, introducing…
Waiting for God, based on the popular BBC television comedy series, will receive its national premiere at the Broadway in April 2017, ahead of a national UK tour.
