This Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy is the story of Elwood P. Dowd, a friendly man with a very strange best friend—a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch invisible rabbit named Harvey. Elwood’s sister tries to have him committed at the sanatorium but Elwood and Harvey have other plans.

 

When: Thursday, August 1st & Possible Callbacks August 2nd (TBD)

Please prepare two contrasting one-minute monologues and also be prepared for some movement exercises at callbacks as well.

 

 Male Roles

 Elwood P. Dowd (Lead) (Age 35-55) Elwood P. Dowd is the central character of the play, a charming eccentric who’s best friend is Harvey, an invisible six-foot-tall rabbit. Elwood is well mannered, very friendly, and has “old-school gentleman charm”. Elwood is Veta’s older brother.

Dr. William B. Chumley (Age 50-80) Dr. Chumley is an esteemed psychiatrist and the head of Chumley’s Rest with years of experience. He is a difficult, exacting man who will go to any length to protect the reputation of his sanitarium.

Dr. Lyman Sanderson (Age 20-35) Dr. Sanderson is a young and highly qualified psychiatrist, handpicked by Dr. Chumley. His talent is only surpassed by his vanity. He is as infatuated with Nurse Kelly as she is with him, though he struggles not to let on. 

Wilson (Age 20-50) Wilson is the muscle of Chumley’s Rest, a devoted orderly responsible for handling the patients who will not cooperate voluntarily. He sets his sites on Myrtle Mae Simmons soon after meeting her.

Judge Omar Gaffney (Age 40-80) The judge is an old family friend of the Dowds and the family’s lawyer. He is fiercely protective of the family and surprisingly understanding of Elwood’s belief in Harvey. 

 

 Female Roles 

Veta Louise Simmons (Age 35-55) Elwood’s younger sister, Veta has returned to the family home after the death of her mother and is intent on landing a suitable husband for her daughter Myrtle Mae. She is very concerned about fitting into society and all the social proprieties that that involves. She also loves her older brother Elwood very much. 

Ruth Kelly (Age 18-35) Nurse Kelly is a sympathetic character, a pretty young woman who has a love/hate relationship with Dr. Sanderson. She is sweet and kind and looks for the best in people. 

Myrtle Mae Simmons (Age 18-30) Myrtle is Veta’s Daughter (Elwood’s Niece). Both Veta and Myrtle are about the business of finding Myrtle a man to marry-a mission that is made impossible with Elwood and Harvey constantly popping in. Myrtle is extremely self-centered. 

Ethel Chauvenet (Age 50-80) Mrs. Chauvenet is an old friend of the family. She is an elite member of the town’s social circle that Veta desperately wants Myrtle to break into. Usually played an older actress. 

Betty Chumley (Age 50-80) Dr. Chumley’s kind and talkative wife. Usually played an older actress.

 

Gender Neutral Role

E. J. Lofgren (Open age) E.J. Lofgren is a cab driver whose monologue about sanitarium passengers is crucial to the climax of the play.
