NORTH ADAMS -- Mill City Productions’ "Harvey," by Mary Chase, takes the stage, Fridays, Oct. 18 and 25, and Saturday, Oct. 19 and 26, at 8 p.m., with matinee performances Saturday, Oct. 19 and 26, and Sundays, Oct. 20 and 27, at 2 p.m.
The production is co-directed by Jackie DeGiorgis and Tara Johnson, and features 12 Berkshire County actors.
When Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society party, his sister, Veta, 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, 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 hallucinations 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.
Performances will take place at Mill City’s Theatre at Building 4N (next to the Visitor’s Center) in the Western Gateway Heritage State Park.
Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for students/seniors. Tickets are available at the door or can be purchased in advance.
