Letchworth Arcadians celebrated their 70th anniversary as a drama society with a sell-out performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

The group received standing ovations after the megamix at the end of each performance.

They also hosted their local NODA (National Operative and Dramatic Association) representative one night. She said: "I was delighted to attend Letchworth Arcadians production of Joseph in their 70th Anniversary Year, and what an energetic and excellent production. 

"The energy exuded from the whole cast and communicated through to the audience, a real feel-good show."

She particularly praised the performances of Craig Prutton as Joseph, and Sophie and Lucy Walker as the narrators, as well as David Walker for his imaginative direction and Hannah Long for the sound and harmonies.


Mary Driver, on behalf of Letchworth Arcadians, said: "It really was an exciting show to perform and to watch.

"Congratulations to all Arcadians in their 70th Anniversary Year."

The Letchworth Arcadians' next production is '70 Years Centre Stage', where the group will celebrate the best of the songs they have performed over the last 70 years.

This will be performed at the Icknield Centre in Letchworth from November 9 to November 11.
