ROSSFORD - The Rossford High School Drama Club has announced the cast for its Fall production of the beloved Pulitzer Prize winning comedy, "Harvey" by Mary Chase.
Sophomore Andrew Sabovik will star as eccentric bachelor Elwood P. Dowd who claims to have an unseen friend Harvey, whom he describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall white rabbit.
His social-climbing sister, Veta Louise (senior Haley Peterson), finds his behavior embarrassing, especially when family friend Mrs. "Aunt" Ethel Chauvenet (junior Taylor Moore) visits. Veta Louise decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her and her daughter Myrtle Mae (freshman Emily Williams) from future embarrassment.
When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues. The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood. When Elwood shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood's delusion has had a strange influence on the staff, including sanitarium director Dr. William Chumley (senior Brandon Goldsmith), his dim socialite wife Betty Chumley (junior Hannah Peterson), his young business partner, Dr. Lyman Sanderson (sophomore Danny Fox), along with Nurse Ruth Kelly (senior Stephanie Hiner) and brute orderly Duane Wilson (senior Trent Morelock). Only just before Elwood is to be given medical injections that will make him depressed and catatonic,  a cabdriver, E.F. Lofgren (sophomore Alex Santellana) observes the drastic changes he sees in people coming in and out of the sanitarium. Veta realizes that she'd rather have Elwood medicine free- carefree and kind - even if it means living with Harvey. Also starring freshman Lexi Rakovan as Miss Johnson.
"Harvey" is directed by Julie Zatko and Ryan Mahaffey with technical direction and design by Eddie Czubinski.  Student direction by sophomore Alex Santellana. Stage management by senior Gillian Zywiczynski and light crew management by sophomore Andy Langlois. Production dates are in mid-November.
