FULTON – CNY Arts Center is excited to present the classic Harvey onstage running November 11-20 at 11 River Glen Drive on the Cayuga College Fulton Campus.

Bringing together a cast of local favorites under the direction of Amy Price Metz, the comedy tells the story of Elwood Dowd’s loveable, but invisible, six foot tall rabbit, Harvey.

In this scene from the classic stage play Harvey, Nurse Kelly (Jessie Dobrzynski) and Dr. Sanderson (Adam Schmidtmann) have a heated exchange about the invisible rabbit.

The play written by Mary Chase was made into an Oscar-winning movie in 1950 with Dowd played by Jimmy Stewart.

The movie was remade in 1996 and has maintained a fan base that crosses generations and delivers old-fashioned fun and laughter.

The talented cast includes well-known actors Christopher Metz as Elwood Dowd, Beth DeRousie as his sister Veta, and Adam Schmidtmann as Dr. Sanderson.

Other familiar cast members include Sabrina Woodward, Jessie Dobrzynski, Beverly Poznoski, Donald Crowe and Kevin Coleman.

Derek Potocki returns from his Arts Center debut in Oliver, and is joined by newcomers Bob Fullenbaum and Patrick Carman.
