Community Theater to hold auditions for comedy ‘Harvey’

The Village Church Community Theater in Rancho Santa Fe recently announced auditions for the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatic comedy “Harvey,” by Mary Chase. Auditions will be held on Monday, Aug. 15, from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Aug.16, from 6 - 8 p.m. at The Village Church, 6225 Paseo Delicias, Rancho Santa Fe 92067. Roles are for adults ages 18 through 90. This comedy is the story of a mild-mannered yet eccentric gentleman, Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey - a 6-foot tall invisible rabbit. The play is set in 1944, when Elwood begins to introduce Harvey to folks in town, his embarrassed sister and niece become determined to commit Elwood to a sanitarium. Mistakes are made, people go missing, chaos ensues, but in the end everyone realizes that family love is unconditional.

Performances will be held Friday, Oct. 14; Saturday, Oct.15 and Sunday, Oct. 16.
