WaterTower Theatre Announces Cast & Creative Details for Harvey

Addison (TX) – WaterTower Theatre Producing Artistic Director Shane Peterman today announced casting and creative details for Harvey.

WaterTower Theatre’s 24th season is off to a successful start with Sister Act and the upcoming Cirque Holidays, followed in the new year by Harvey which will run from February 6th- February 23rd on the Terry Martin Main Stage at the Addison Theatre Centre. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Mary Chase follows Elwood P. Dowd, a polite man with a very strange best friend. Elwood’s sister, Veta, is concerned her brother’s friend will interfere with her life as a socialite, and who can blame her? Elwood’s friend is a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch invisible rabbit named Harvey. To avoid future embarrassment, Veta attempts to have Elwood committed, but after her frantic recount of her brother’s condition she finds herself mistakenly committed instead. The truth quickly reveals itself, and the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When Elwood shows up at the sanitarium looking for his long lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood’s delusion has had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors, which leads Veta to realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.

WaterTower Theatre’s production is directed by Dick Monday. The production stars Jeremiah Johnson as Elwood P. Dowd, Felicia Bertch as his sister Veta Simmons, Kennedy O’Kelley as his niece Myrtle Mae Simmons, Kim Titus as Dr. Chumley, Laura Yancey as Betty Chumley, Mary Tiner as Ethel Chauvenet, Carson D. Wright as Dr. Sanderson, Jo-Jo Steine as Nurse Kelly, Tyler Cochran as Wilson, Bradley Campbell as Judge Gaffney, and Mark Quach as E. J. Lofgren.

The creative team includes Becca Janney as Costume Designer, Aaron Johansen as Lighting Designer, Hillary Collazo Abbott as Properties Designer, Clare Floyd DeVries as Scenic Designer, Rich Frohlich as Sound Designer, Michelle Foster as Production Stage Manager, and Samantha Honeycutt as Assistant Stage Manager.
