Taller Pooka in Salina

KSAL StaffApril 1, 2014

The audience will be seeing things at Salina Community Theatre this weekend, as the play “Harvey” comes to life.

Director Gary Demuth says the comedy turns seventy this year, “There’s a reason it’s a classic, and it’s still charming, relevant and every time it’s done there’s new life,” he said.

The story is driven by the eccentric lead character Elwood P. Dowd, who’s best friend is a tall, invisible rabbit.

Demuth tells KSAL News they had to add stretch the unseen pooka in rehearsals.

“Keith Pederson who plays Elwood is 6-foot 5 so we had to add some inches to Harvey and make him about 6-foot 8!”

The Pulitzer Prize winning tale written by Mary Chase opens Friday night at the Salina Community Theatre and runs through Saturday April 19th.
