WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. – The Williams Baptist College Theatre Program opens its final play of the 2016-17 season on Thursday night. Mary Chase’s “Harvey” will run Thursday and Friday, April 20-21.
“Harvey,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy, is the story of a perfect gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey — a pooka, who is a six-foot tall, invisible rabbit. When Elwood begins introducing Harvey around town, his embarrassed sister, Veta Louise, and her daughter, Myrtle Mae, determine to commit Elwood to a sanitarium. A mistake is made, however, and Veta is committed rather than Elwood! Eventually, the mistake is realized, and a frantic search begins for Elwood and the invisible pooka.
The show begins each night at 7:30 p.m. in WBC’s Old Chapel. Tickets are $3 for students and senior citizens and $5 general admission.
