BU Players present "Harvey”

BLOOMSBURG— The Bloomsburg University Players will premiere their spring season with Mary Chase’s comedy “Harvey.” The play, directed by assistant professor of theatre David Miller, will run Wednesday, March 1, through Sunday, March 5, at the Alvina Krause Theatre, 226 Center St., Bloomsburg. Show time on Wednesday-Saturday is 7:30 p.m. with show time on Sunday is 3 p.m.

“Harvey” follows Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend Harvey, a seemingly invisible anthropomorphic six-foot-one-and-a-half-inch rabbit. Not everyone is happy to have Harvey around, including Elwood’s social climbing sister Veta Louise, who is determined to commit him to a sanitarium. “Harvey” won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1945.

The 12 member cast includes Emily Henderson, Carly Carman, Titus O’Neil, Kayla McGarry, Kendall Baird and Kate Mochnacz. Also, Josué Nieves, Nate Stosius, Jonathan Schultz, Madeline Okuniewski, Austyn Redwinski, and Chris Thorne.

Tickets are free for BU students with student ID, $6 for adults and $4 for seniors and students. Advance tickets may be purchased at the Haas Center box office or at the door one hour before curtain time.

The BU Community Government Association and the Center for Visual and Performing Arts are sponsors of this production.
