Next up at The Pavilion Theatre is the wonderfully warm story of Harvey, by Mary Chase, directed by Meredith Jacobs. The show opened on Friday 6 April and runs until Saturday 28 April.

Veta Louise Simmons and her daughter, Myrtle Mae, are entertaining the ladies of the Wednesday Forum, high society indeed! Veta’s brother, Elwood, arrives home, accompanied by his good friend, Harvey, and Elwood proudly introduces Harvey to Aunt Ethel. The trouble is, Harvey is an invisible 6 foot tall white rabbit, Aunt Ethel is confused and Veta and Myrtle Mae are mortified!

This is the final straw for Veta who decides to take firm action to rid their lives of Harvey. In deciding to have Elwood committed to the local sanitarium, chaos ensues and the staff mistakenly admit Veta for treatment!

Elwood and Harvey go missing, aDr. Chumley is furious with Dr. Sanderson, Nurse Kelly is charmed by Elwood, and Myrtle Mae decides she will sell the house! Meanwhile, Harvey is hosting drinks at several bars around town and Judge Gaffney threatens legal action.

Through it all Elwood’s gentle outlook on life and his friendship with Harvey teach everyone a valuable lesson about tolerance, acceptance and unconditional love.
