Best known for its 1950 film adaptation staring Jimmy Stewart, Mary Chase’s 1944 Pulitzer Prize winning comedy Harvey will be charming its way into the hearts of Centenary Stage Company audiences Oct. 3 through Oct. 19 at The Lackland Center.

One of modern theatre's most lovable characters, Elwood P. Dowd is charming and kind but has only one character flaw: an unwavering friendship with a 6-foot-tall, invisible white rabbit named Harvey. In order to save the family's social reputation, Elwood's sister Veta takes Elwood to the local sanatorium. But when the doctors mistakenly commit his anxiety-ridden sister, Elwood-and Harvey-slip out of the hospital unbothered, setting off a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as everyone in town tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit. The question is — does the world need another “normal” chap or more Harveys?

Directing this production is CSC’s own award – winning Carl Wallnau. Chosen to beautify the stage of the Sitnik Theatre, once again, with his stunning and life-like set designs is Emmy Award-winning designer Bob Phillips.

Tickets for Harvey range from $25 to $27.50 with discounts for students and seniors. Every Thursday night is “Family Night,” which offers a 2-for-1 rush ticket price when purchased at the door.

Harvey is sponsored by Bea McNally’s Irish Pub.
