New Members Benefit

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.
