Hop over to South Carroll for `Harvey'


November 12, 1999|By Donna Abel | Donna Abel,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE SOUTH CARROLL Stagelighters invite you to attend their fall production of "Harvey," a three-act comedy by Mary Chase.

Performances will be 7: 30 p.m. today and tomorrow in the school auditorium at 13300 W. Old Liberty Road, Winfield. Tickets are $4. A silent auction, sponsored by the PTSO, will be held on performance nights in the cafeteria.

This story takes a lighthearted look at family, examines how we deal with people who are different from us, and challenges reality in an innocent and charming way.

Sean Hopkins, a junior at South Carroll, plays Elwood P. Dowd, a friendly man with a very large invisible white rabbit as his best friend. When his sister Veta Louise, played by senior Missi Koch, insists that Elwood be committed to an insane asylum, a string of hilarious events begin to happen.

Hopkins immersed himself in the part this past week. So much so, that he obtained approval from his teachers at South Carroll to bring "Harvey" to school with him. According to his co-stars, Hopkins took Harvey to class, to lunch and anywhere he went during the day.

The students agreed that it seemed he really had a big rabbit with him because he made it so realistic.

Other cast members include seniors Anna Harrison, Heather Weisse, Shannon Wells, Andrew Benya, Golden Stephenson, Anna Matheus, Matt Evans and Noah Mazaika; Grant Dorsey, a junior; and Jen Klem, a sophomore.

The play is directed by drama and British literature teacher Bobbi Baker, who has directed a number of shows for Carroll County public schools. Assistant director Joe Cairns is a senior at South Carroll and a member of the high school's jazz band.
