renovations logoRenovations, a comedy by local playwright Graeme Powell, is set to make its worldwide debut on the Uxbridge Music Hall stage (November 27- December 6th) and directors Michael Serres and Annette Stokes are inviting all interested actors to audition.

Renovations is the story of Brent and Jenny, a young couple in the midst of renovating an old Victorian house in a small southern Ontario town. On the surface, all seems well…they are still madly in love, Jenny’s dad is lending a much needed hand, and they are meeting the neighbours. But there are cracks in more than just the plaster. Soon, both the past and the future begin to exert more and more pressure. Is the foundation strong enough to withstand the weight?
