Vernon theatre seeks cast help for winter show

Casting call for Self Help will take place Dec. 28 and 29 at the Powerhouse Theatre

The curtain continues to rise inside Vernon’s Powerhouse Theatre.

The Powerhouse Theatrical Society is returning to the stage with full houses, and up on the bill next is Self Help by Norm Foster, directed by Adele Kuyek.

So there’s a stiff in the study. A reporter’s looking for dirt in the hall. A detective is looking for a missing gardener. The maid is in major need of self help. A smart-mouthed agent is suspicious that something is amiss. Self-help gurus Cindy and Hal Savage’s perfect life has fallen apart.
