Opening November 2014!

“A show for the entire family, from kids to grandparents. By the end, you too may want to see that rabbit!”

– New York Post

Elwood P. Dowd is a kind and charming man, whose lovable character has one major flaw – his best friend is an invisible, six-foot-tall rabbit named Harvey. His society-conscious sister, Veta, decides to save herself future embarrassment by having Elwood committed to the local sanitarium. But when Veta is mistakenly committed in his place, a loony tornado of chaos, confusion, and laughter ensues, leaving everyone chasing after Elwood and his giant, cotton-tailed friend. The Pulitzer Prize-winning HARVEY is a classic comedy about finding ourselves while losing our minds.

November 8-23, 2014

Appropriate for ages ten (10) and up.
Harvey is a fun play for the entire family, although younger children may be bored
