Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta's social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is believed to be an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarrassment for her family and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae, Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood's hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother.

The truth comes out, Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn't so bad after all.

Director's Message

Greetings, Theater Patrons! It has been a wonderful journey through the production of "Harvey". It was not an easy task directing an invisible rabbit, but with a little patience, and a fabulous cast, it all came together. It is the story of Elwood P.Dowd, who's best friend is a six foot tall white rabbit. His sister Veta is sure he is crazy, but is he? The trouble begins when Veta tries to commit Elwood to Chumley's Rest, and she herself gets locked up instead. Then enter Dr. Chumley, who is very  interested in Elwood's case, until he meets Harvey. I hope you enjoy the show!
- Suzanne J. Houbre, Director
