To have an excellent theatrical performance, the audience must lose touch with reality for the show, leaving everyday life to enter the minds and lives of the characters. In Stow-Munroe Falls High School's performance of "Harvey," not only will the audience question reality, but the characters themselves.

The play is to be performed in the high school auditorium for all audiences on Nov. 22 and 23 at 7 p.m., and Nov. 24 at 2:30 p.m. There is a special performance on Nov. 22 morning for senior citizens as well.

"Harvey," written by Mary Chase, presents the story of a man named Edward P. Dowd, played by Zach Fretag. Dowd is whimsical and charming to every person he sees, and his family and friends admire his charisma; however, the defining characteristic of Dowd cannot be seen, and in Dowd's eyes, is not a part of him at all.

Dowd sees and has a strong friendship with a 6-foot tall rabbit named Harvey.

As the story progresses, the audience will see Mr. Dowd charm his way into the hearts of those who cannot stand to believe in Harvey. His sister, Veta Louise Simmons, played by Allison Caldwell, and niece, Myrtle May Simmons, played by Jenna Bulgrin, however, struggle to accept Harvey, stating the idea of him ruins their lives. Because of their hatred, they admit Dowd into the psychiatric ward.

Here, Dowd must gain the trust among the doctors, the affection of the nurse he finds charming and maintain the mindset that Harvey exists; otherwise, he may lose the vision of Harvey forever.

The cast has been rehearsing the play since the beginning of October. They consist of people: Zach Fretag, Allison Caldwell, Jenna Bulgrin, Zach Jira, Mitch Felan, Allen Freitas, Collin Oborn, Bailey Cole, Natalie Snyder, Zack Ray, Emma Stout and Alissa Thomas.

There are also multiple seniors running crews, including stage, props, lighting, and sound crews. The entire production is student organized and student run.

Emily Baldwin is the student producer of the play, Leslie Ditrick and Kara Burton are student directors. Robert Putka is the director.

This play consists of three acts. There will be an intermission after the first, with concessions available. The profits of the event go toward the senior class.

All involved hope for an excellent audience each night, praising these students for their hard work and great performances.
