The classic story of Elwood P. Dowd and his invisible rabbit named Harvey comes to life on the Ashe Civic Center stage. Harvey opens Friday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. Performances are also scheduled for Saturday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 25, at 2:00 p.m.

 Directed by Jim Williams and produced by Linda Dreyer, Harvey tells the story of an affable man named Elwood P. Dowd (played by Ken Mullen) and his unseen to all but Elwood, presumably imaginary friend Harvey, a six foot tall rabbit. When Elwood starts to introduce Harvey to guests at a society party, his society-obsessed sister, Veta (played by Maureen Dintino), has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have Elwood committed to spare her daughter Myrtle Mae (Tyler Cloherty) and their family from future embarrassment. Comedy ensues when the folks at the Sanitarium have Veta committed instead of Elwood.

 Other cast members include. Bill Baker, Barry Aldridge, Melissa Caudill, Jeff Dreyer, Jan Gambill, Dayne Hodges, Connie Hardison,   Les Miller and Edie Miller.
