Playwright Mary Chase won a Pulitzer Prize for Harvey, her enduring comedy about a gentle cocktail-consumer named Elwood P. Dowd, his domineering and society-loving sister Veta, the doctors at a nearby sanitarium and, of course, Elwood's best friend, a giant invisible rabbit named Harvey. To save her family from embarrassment, Veta tries to have Elwood committed, but things don't go exactly according to plan and Veta gets committed instead. A long-running Broadway hit, Harvey was adapted into an Oscar-winning 1950 movie starring Jimmy Stewart. Learn More
About the Ticket Supplier: Stagecrafters
Stagecrafters really began in the 1930s and continued into the early 1940s. At the start of World War II, the group ceased production of plays. In 1950, the J.C.C. Board of Directors brought together a group of 50 people to organize activities for young adults. Out of this emerged a new theater group to carry on the Stagecrafters tradition. The first play, Goodbye, My Fancy
, was produced in April of 1952, and from that time the group has continued to grow into a successful organization.
