Girl in the Goldfish Bowl

“You are not very good at being a human being.” Iris recounts her final moments of childhood as her quirky, dysfunctional family plays out their mid-life crisis to an unsettling conclusion. This thoughtful, funny, wacky, off-kilter story by BC’s very own Morris Panych explores the struggles of a modern household teetering on the edge of change at the same time as the world teeters on the edge.

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

Powerhouse Theatre auditioning for festival play

The Powerhouse Theatre is holding auditions at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 4, for Ben Hur, its third performance of the regular season. The show, which will run from April 29 - May 9, will also be the Powerhouse’s entry in the Ozone (May 16 – 23 in Kelowna) and Mainstage (July 3 - 11 in Port Alberni) festivals, which showcase the best community theatre productions from around the region and province.

Director Tanya Laing Gahr said that strong actors and backstage crew are required for the show.

“This is an outstanding and hilarious script that is going to challenge performers and crew,” said Laing Gahr. “Four actors portray more than 20 characters in order to bring the enormity of Ben Hur to life, and the technicians and stage managers will have their hands full supporting the special effects, quick changes and other surprises for the audience.”

The play follows an amateur theatre troupe of four actors as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben Hur. Ben Hur falls to galley slave and rises to champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ, while the actors struggle along through the play as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere.

“This is a fast-paced comedy, which makes it an exciting festival entry,” said Laing Gahr. “The performances at Ozone and Mainstage Festival often lean toward dramas, but I believe that comedy done well is a greater challenge for both actors and directors. Timing and delivery are everything, so cast and crew will be at the top of their game throughout the run of the play and into festival season.”

Laing Gahr directed Powerhouse Theatre’s production of Calendar Girls in 2018, which went on to win Best Production at Ozone and Theatre BC’s Mainstage. She was also awarded Best Director at Mainstage.

Interested actors and crew are encouraged to attend the open reading at the Powerhouse Theatre at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 3. Auditions take place at 1 p.m. in the auditorium of Powerhouse Theatre on Saturday, January 4. Callbacks are scheduled for the following afternoon at 1 p.m.
