Harvey - Senior Reader's Theatre

by Mary Chase
Directed by Phil Murphy
Our Senior Reader's Theatre program Aged to Perfection was established seven years ago as a way of providing more performance opportunities for our veteran actors. ATP has proven to be very popular with volunteers and patrons alike. It is designed to meet the needs of actors 55 and older. All productions are "reader's theatre" in nature, lines and lyrics are learned but not memorized.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy is the story of a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey - a six-foot tall, invisible rabbit. When Elwood begins introducing Harvey around town, his embarrassed sister, Veta Louise, and her daughter, Myrtle Mae, decide to commit Elwood to a sanitarium. But a mistake is made and doctors mistakenly commit Veta instead of her mild-mannered brother Elwood! Eventually, the error is realized, and a frantic search begins for Elwood and the invisible rabbit, which ends with Elwood appearing, voluntarily, at the sanitarium. Veta finally comes to realize that she loves her brother and his invisible best friend just as they are, and doesn't want either of them to change.
