WRFA’s Jason Sample talks with cast members Sharee Dominick and Sheridan Smith about the upcoming performance of Harvey at the Lucille Ball Little Theatre in Jamestown.
Harvey, a Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Mary Chase, is the story of a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey — a pooka, who is a six-foot tall, invisible rabbit. When Elwood begins introducing Harvey around town, his embarrassed sister, Veta Louise, and her daughter, Myrtle Mae, determine to commit Elwood to a sanitarium. A mistake is made, however, and Veta is committed rather than Elwood! Eventually, the mistake is realized, and a frantic search begins for Elwood and the invisible pooka, which ends with Elwood appearing, voluntarily, at the sanitarium. In the end, however, Veta realizes that she loves her brother and his invisible his best friend just as they are, and doesn’t want either of them to change.
The play is being shown November 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd at 7:30 p.m. and November 17th and 24th at 2 p.m.
Directed by: Richard Walter
