Powerhouse Theatre

We are encouraging you to enter the world of live theatre by becoming a member of the Powerhouse. We have a lot of fun creating and producing our shows for Vernon. It's an experience that is hard to explain in a few words, but once you have felt the camaraderie and joy of taking a script to opening night, it's not something you will easily forget. Acting on stage is the visible result of the performance... putting the show together takes many, many people and= hundreds of hours to get there. We need set constructors, costume people, poster designers, ushers, back stage helpers, the list goes on and on. If you are interested in helping out or being part of any upcoming productions, please contact producer@powerhousetheatre.net. All Powerhouse Theatrical Society's productions are held at the Powerhouse Theatre (2901 35th Avenue, Vernon). Costume Bank is open 4pm - 7pm on Thursdays.

They gave it their all on stage, during both their usual season and Theatre BC performance, and it paid off.
Vernon’s Powerhouse Theatre went up to bat with Calendar Girls in Theatre BC Okanagan Zone Festival (Ozone) competition action and claimed Best Production at the awards banquet May 26.

The festival saw theatre companies from across the region ignite the Powerhouse Theatre stage nightly and compete for a myriad of noteworthy awards. For their efforts, Calendar Girls, under the direction of Tanya Laing Gahr, will move on to provincials in the form of Theatre BC’s Mainstage Festival, which returns to Vernon June 29 to July 7 for the second consecutive year.

“It is always a fantastic overload of terrific theatre made by terrific theatre makers. The festival is an exciting collaboration between many diverse groups held together by one love — the theatre — and one goal: the pursuit of excellence. It never fails to move me, excite me and, as an educator, challenge me,” said festival adjudicator Andrew McIlroy who offered feedback in the form of post-show talks and coffee critiques.
“I stand outside the theatre at the conclusion of every show and watch the audience head home. They have been challenged, moved to laughter and tears and are ultimately richer for the experience.”
That consistent output of terrific theatre is derived from a community theatre company’s love of the craft, said administrator Richard Kerton.
“The Okanagan has strong theatre companies. There’s a lot of community theatre in this zone and it builds stronger support,” said Kerton. “This is one way of bringing everyone together to get that advice, and it builds collaborative efforts. I’ve been doing this a long time so I’m passionate about it.”
McIlroy, a professional dramaturge, agreed.
“The event is live,” McIlroy said. “The work is live, and there is no place I’d rather be.”
