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 All Powerhouse Theatrical Society's productions are held at the Powerhouse Theatre (2901 35th Avenue, Vernon). Costume Bank is open 4pm - 7pm on Thursdays.

The twists and turns are non-stop in this hilarious mystery whodunit. Broadway star William Gillette, renowned for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to visit him at his castle for a weekend of revelry. However, when one of the guests turns up dead, the merriment quickly turns treacherous in a comedic fashion. Gillete himself steps up to take on the persona of Sherlock Holmes before the next victim appears.
