Open Call Auditions: Algoma Repertory Theatre Presents “Harvey”

0
Harvey by Mary Chase

Thinking of making an early New Year’s resolution to get onstage in 2020? Algoma Repertory Theatre will be presenting a dinner theatre performance of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Comedy “Harvey” by Mary Chase (March 4th – 7th, 2020 at the Grand Garden North) and they need a cast.

“Harvey” is the story of a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey, who everyone wants to meet. When Elwood begins introducing others to Harvey – a six-foot tall “pooka” (invisible rabbit) – his socially invested and extremely embarrassed sister, Veta Louise, and her daughter, Myrtle Mae, want Harvey gone. They conspire to commit Elwood to a sanitarium but, in a comedy of errors, Veta is committed instead. In the ensuing confusion, the doctors, Veta, and Elwood all try to figure out who really is crazy— and whether the world needs another “normal” chap, or more Harveys.

Tickets are on sale now for what is sure to be a wonderful night out. Get them at www.ARTinSSM.com, and put them under the tree for Christmas! Everyone loves the gift of dinner theatre.
