Carroll Theatre Presents Pulitzer Prize-winning "Harvey"

Monday, September 18, 2017

HELENA – Carroll College Theatre presents the Pulitzer prize-winning play, “Harvey,” by Mary Chase. The production will run September 29 – October 8, Thursday – Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2:30 p.m.

In “Harvey,” Elwood P. Dowd introduces his unseen friend Harvey (a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling a rabbit) to everyone he meets. His sister, Veta, finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed. The doctors at the sanitarium propose to give Elwood an injection that will make him into a "perfectly normal human being, and you know what bastards they are!" (in the words of a taxi cab driver who has become involved in the proceedings). In the end, will Veta realize that she would rather have Elwood the same as he has always been—even if it means living with Harvey?

Shows will be 7:30 p.m. on September 29, 30, October 5, 6, 7 with 2:30 p.m. matinees on Oct. 1 and 8.

Parking is free in the Campus Center lot off of Lyndale for all performances. The theatre is fully ADA accessible through the east entrance of the Campus Center. Tickets are available at the door or online at the Carroll Theatre Online Ticket Storefront. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors, $2 for Carroll students and employees (id required). For more information, visit the Carroll Theatre Season webpage.
