Powerhouse theatre gets grant money

A local arts group with a long history of offering great community theatre will benefit in the latest round of community gaming grants offered by the current BC Liberal Government.

The Powerhouse Theatrical Society, a long-standing institution in the Vernon community, has been given a $25,000 grant towards its 50th season of theatre production.

“For five decades this talented group of performers, staff and volunteers has kept us entertained and inspired,” said Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster and a member of the Liberal caucus.

“This grant will help the society continue to offer up exciting productions, as well as training and educational opportunities for the community.”

The Community Gaming Grants allow non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues. Across British Columbia, 68 recipients will share $2,212,640 in the latest round of grants. Last fiscal year, in 2012/13, the government distributed a total of $135 million in gaming grants for eligible community programs and services.

Approximately 5,300 community groups benefited from funding during 2011/12.
