Information: * Run entirely by volunteers, BWCAS is always keen to welcome new members of any age and ability, and to support their needs.
* The 1999-2002 Builth Wells and District Community Play "A Little Below Heaven/Ychydig Islaw¡¦r Nefoedd" was aUNIQUE EXTRAVAGANZA told through spectacle, song and music, with 7 sell-out performances at Wyeside Arts Centre. The specially commissioned story about Builth and its community through the 20th century was brought to life by a huge all-local cast and back-stage team!
* In response to an overwhelming call for MORE, Builth Wells Community ArtS was set up in the summer of 2002.
* In June 2002, a feisty troupe devised and performed a comic sketch, The Day the Dragon Got Its B***s Back! for the town Carnival
* In October 2002, members of BWCAS set up a striking exhibition of excellent photographs from the Community Play + the Scrap Opera, in process and production, in the Gallery at Wyeside Arts Centre
* In January 2003, the company came together for a spectacular and well-received community production of Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood, including a short local contemporary tribute, Over Builth Bridge, "pithy snippet of turn of the 21st century Builth".
* The company is devising a comic skit for the Carnival in June ¡V please feel free to come and play your part!
* Poetry and folk evenings are proving popular. Check the What's On section of the Builth Web Sitefor detail.
* Professional community-minded artists run workshops in acting, dance, music, voice production, singing, writing, costume, lighting design, etc.
* So why not come and learn some new skills while having fun, making new friends and stretching those personal limits!
