We are excited to welcome you back to the Powerhouse theatre for our 2023-2024 season! We will be kicking off our season with “It’s a Wonderful Life” by Philip Grecian, directed by Jackson Mace. In 1946 Frank Capra blessed the world with his masterpiece “It’s A Wonderful Life”. Powerhouse is delighted to present this terrific adaptation of a cherished and uplifting tale. Allow George Bailey to share what his befuddled guardian angel teaches him - that we all can make a difference … that we all matter. This holiday season, fill your hearts with magic!

We follow this up with “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde, adapted by Aurand Harris, directed by Emily MacArthur. When Algernon discovers that his friend, Ernest, has created a fictional brother to escape his dull social obligations, Algernon decides to pose as the brother, resulting in mistaken identities, light-hearted debauchery, and ever increasing confusion. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play.

Our final production of the season is, “The Play That Goes Wrong” by Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, and Jonathan Sayer, directed by Tanya Laing Gahr. Part Agatha Christie whodunnit, part Carol Burnett Show hijinx, and part The Actor’s Nightmare...The Play That Goes Wrong brings to life a corpse who won’t stay dead, a leading lady that won’t wake up, and a cast just trying to keep everything on track. Will the killer be found? Will the butler remember his lines? Will the actors make it to curtain call? Definitely maybe. Or not.

"Cottagers & Indians" by Ojibway playwright Drew Hayden Taylor explores some of the specific tensions between Indigenous Peoples and settler Canadians. The play is warm, funny, poignant and real. It is a great example of how mutual understanding can create Reconciliation between individuals, and perhaps provide hope for Reconciliation for all of us.

Directed by Tanya Laing Gahr
