Ben Hur

Written by Patrick Barlow
Directed by Tanya Laing-Gahr

Directed by Tanya Laing Gahr, technical direction by Rusty Gahr, and featuring Gabriel Newman, Cliff Lattery, John Lomas and Ali Baloun. Ben Hur is a hilarious comedy about a troupe of overconfident performers doing their best to mount an epic for the ages … to varying degrees of success.

They said it was unachievable! They said it couldn’t be done! But now the greatest book ever penned is brought to the stage by a towering team of just four actors – turning a theatre near you into one of the most authentic versions of Ancient Rome ever seen! Complete with:

Stunning combat (featuring the latest 3D technology – suitable for all ages)!

A 100%-bona fide chariot race (with REAL chariots)!

An authentic sea battle (with REAL water)!

Ben Hur is the epic set to stir your very soul.

May 12 – 14 @ 7:30pm
May 15 @ 2:00pm
May 19 – 21 @ 7:30pm

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