The Arcadians

Our comedy sketch and revue group

Many years ago, before Adam discovered apples, there was a need for a Youth Centre in Wellington. A small gathering of people decided to put on an "entertainment" to raise money towards this noble cause.

And so the "Arcadian Fun Compendium" was born. After the Youth Centre was built, the members of the Compendium decided to carry on raising money. However, because not many of them could spell the word "Compendium", the name was shortened to "The Arcadians". Time passed, and a decision was taken by others to form an Arts Association, and The Arcadians were invited to take part. The rest, as they say, is mystery. Well, it seems that way sometimes.

The Arcadians as part of the WAA concentrates on shows of a Revue nature, which include music, dancing, sketches, singing, juggling, unicycling, dressing up, dressing down, and making people laugh.

Everybody can do something, and if YOU think you can't actually do ANYTHING, why not contact the Chairman by emailing arcadians@w-a-a.co.uk, and prove it to him. If you like to laugh, then you'll do.

The Arcadians do not put on a show every year, but when we do put one on, then its a humdinger - which is nearly as difficult to spell as Cempond. Cumpondy, Compindeum. Well, you know what I mean. Arcadian Revues have interesting and thought provoking names: "At Last the 1974 Show" (put on in 1992 or thereabouts), "Under the Fridge", "Behind the Fridge", and the next one, "Anyone seen the Fridge?" will probably arrive soon. YOU can make it arrive sooner. If you join us that is. Do it now. You know it makes sense.
