Oak Ridge High School Masquers, the school’s drama program, will present Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Harvey” in three performances in November.
“Harvey” is the story of Elwood P. Dowd and his invisible, six-foot-tall rabbit named Harvey. When Elwood’s sister Veta tries to have him committed to the local mental hospital, the doctors commit Veta instead and mad-capped hilarity ensues. Come “see” the best dressed rabbit in town and a fantastic cast of student actors, a press release said.
The Masquers performances will be at the Oak Ridge Performing Arts Center (ORPAC) on:
- Thursday, November 12, at 7 p.m.;
- Saturday, November 14, at 7 p.m.; and
- Sunday, November 15, at 2 p.m.
“Harvey” offers comic entertainment for the entire family under the direction of Joseph Self, who has appeared in, directed, or managed more than 300 stage productions, and is the technical director of ORPAC, the press release said.
Masquers is a student-driven extracurricular program at ORHS of 65-plus students supported by community members and teaching staff. Past performances have included “Oliver,” “Guys and Dolls,” “Murder in the Magnolias,” “Emma,” and many more. The Masquers’ yearly season showcases a fall play, a spring musical, a night of short sketches, and a murder mystery train dinner in conjunction with the Southern Appalachia Railway Museum.
Advance tickets are $6 and available at the ORHS office and The Ferrell Shop. At the door, tickets will be $7 and $8 for adults.
