Pennridge High School and STARS present Harvey at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18 at 7:00pm in the school's auditorium.

C. Jameson Bradley directs this comedy by Mary Chase. The story begins when Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend, Harvey, in an imaginary six-and-a-half foot tall rabbit. To avoid future embarrassment for her family, Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however, Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all. 

General admission tickets ($8) will be available at the door 30 minutes prior to curtain. For more information please call 215-603-4246.
