Classic comedy Harvey at Winnipesaukee Playhouse

MEREDITH —  The Winnipesaukee Playhouse will be presenting Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy Harvey. This classic comedy will be presented by the Winni Players Community Theatre Group on Friday through Sunday, November 8-10 and 15-17. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Harvey, which premiered on Broadway in 1944 and was made into a film starring James Stewart in 1950, was most recently revived on Broadway in 2012 when it featured The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons. Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall "pooka" resembling a rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets, and his sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her and her daughter Myrtle Mae from future embarrassment. Those circumstances only begin the comedy as mistakes and mix-ups at the sanitarium cause even more upheaval.

Director Charles Fray helms a cast of Winni Players regulars including Diane Nickerson, Maggie Roberts, Bryan Halperin, Michael Baker, Meredith Imbimbo, John Wade, Lynn Dadian, John Piquado and Barbara Webb. New cast members include Jim Mernin and Stephen Copithorne.

Tickets cost $18 for orchestra and $10 for balcony and are available at www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org or by calling 279-0333.
