By Philip Grecian, based on the film by Frank Capra
Directed By Jackson Mace
In 1946 Frank Capra blessed the world with his masterpiece “It’s A Wonderful Life”. Powerhouse is delighted to present Philip Grecian’s terrific adaptation of this cherished and uplifting tale. Allow George Bailey to share what his befuddled guardian angel teaches him – that we all can make a difference … that all lives matter. This holiday season, fill your hearts with magic!
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.
“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.
