Powerhouse Theatre is opening its doors for the public to get a closer look into the operations of Vernon’s very own community theatre.

The public is welcome to meet the theatre’s operators, actors, directors, and producers, as well as see costumes, set designs and props at Powerhouse’s open house Sunday.

Memberships will also be available for those who want to join the theatre.

“We are opening all the doors and allowing the public to come take a tour to learn just how much goes into our productions,” said Barb Keith, Powerhouse publicist, in a press release. “We invite you to  allow your curiosity to be piqued and perhaps think about the possibility of getting involved somewhere in our incredible space.”

Besides meeting with the people who make the theatre tick, those who have never been backstage, or have wondered how Powerhouse makes its set pieces, or how the lights and sound operate, can take a sneak peek behind the scenes on a guided tour. Those who are unable to make the open house Sunday are welcome to book a tour at another time by calling 250-541-6194.

“Whether you just took your first steps last week or have recently graduated to a walker, we want you to come and share in the tour to let us show you what we are all so proud of,” said Keith. “There will be refreshments and plenty of experts waiting to warmly greet and tell you stories of how we came to be and where we plan to go.”

Powerhouse is located at 2901-35th Ave., across from the Vernon Fire Hall. The open house goes from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. More information is available at www.powerhouse.net.
