Vermillion Players has been waiting two long years to present this show to you, and they couldn’t be happier that the time is finally here!
When Elwood P. Dowd (Paul Brown) starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society party, his sister, Veta (Kathy Missel), has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae (Jenifer Lyn Shaver), and their family from future embarrassment. Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also! The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When he shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood’s delusion has 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. Rounding out the cast are Meghan Briscoe, Chloe Clayton, Ed Green, Cody Leach, Mick Peterson, Tom Ramseyer, and Dylan Webster.
