Members of the Friends of the Pontardawe Arts Centre are being offered seats at a preferential rate for the Lighthouse Theatre show: IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY Fri 8 November 7.30pm. This American classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. Six actors and a foley artist (I’m afraid I had to look that up – here’s what it is and something to look forward to) bring dozens of characters to the stage, to tell the story of idealistic George Bailey as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve. You’ve seen the film -of course you have! Here’s a trailer as a reminder. The cost to Members of Friends is a modest £5.50. Book via the box office / online.
Thursday 17 October 19:30 in the Arts Centre Studio – an open discussion on progress – Friends and the Arts Centre. All welcome. This follows up your request at the Annual General Meeting for informal meetings through the year.
Friends Support “Youth Project” though match funding and ongoing support. We are delighted that Mess Up the Mess Theatre Company have been awarded a European Union grant to deliver a Youth Engagement Project with Pontardawe Arts Centre over the next 12 months, from September 2019. This will include a weekly Drop in Tech Zone, arts-based courses, the creation of a Youth Forum, volunteering opportunities and a Young Programming Group who will work with the venue to develop a youth led programme.
