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.

The Exquisite Hour, written by Edmonton playwright Stewart Lemoine, is a sweet ode to bygone days when the world's knowledge seemed to be contained in encyclopedias and peddled by a door-to-door salesman.

Or in this case, saleswoman. Helen Darimont is a chirpy, charming, be-gloved lady in 1962, interrupting pleasant bachelor Zachary Teale late in the afternoon as he sips lemonade in his backyard, to politely ask him for an hour of his time.

Over that hour, shy Zack is pulled out of his shell by Helen as they act out scenarios from one encyclopedia volume, and he becomes the open book she reads. They charm and connect—with each other and with the audience—before the play ends, exquisitely, 60 minutes from when it began.
