A WEST End favourite is being brought back to life by the Letchworth Arcadians.

The Arcadians will be performing Carousel at the Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage, next week.

The Arcadians have assembled a strong cast led by Robert Milner as Billy Bigelow and Stephanie Seal as Julie.

Tickets are available from the Gordon Craig box office, and cost between £14 - £15, with a £2 discount for concessions. Performances take place from Monday November 2 - Saturday November 7, and begin at 7.45pm. There is also a Saturday matinees starting at 2.30pm. To book, or for more information, call the theatre on 08700 131 030, or visit www.gordon-craig.co.uk.
