One of the longest-running comedies in Broadway history, Mary Chase’s Harvey has endeared generations of audiences with the relationship of the amiable Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend, a 6’4” tall white rabbit named Harvey, which only he can see. Exasperated, Elwood’s family is finally driven to committing him into Chumley’s Rest Home for the mentally disturbed, but that is easier said than done. The madness is soon catching, and Harvey is not all he appears to be. A true classic of modern theatre, this 1945 Pulitzer Prize winner about a lovable eccentric still resonates today.
Cast in the production are Amy Heimann as Myrtle Mae Simmons, Amy Taylor as Veta Louise Simmons, Steve Reily as Elwood P. Dowd, Faith Linder as Miss Johnson, Charlotte Freeborn as Mrs. Ethel Chauvenet, Courtney Lefan as Ruth Kelly, R.N., Esteban Garza as Duane Wilson, Elliot Dooley as Lyman Sanderson, M.D., Robert Menking as William R. Chumley, M.D., Kathy Weaver as Betty Chumley, Bill Sadd as Judge Omar Gaffney, and Paul Taylor as E.J. Lofgren.
Harvey will be directed by Guest Director Bob Straus. Guest designer Judd Vermillion will serve as scenic designer. FTC staff member Addison Powers will design the lighting and Amber Nanni will serve as the costume designer. Harvey will be stage managed by Augusta Bolton.
