“Harvey” will be presented Wednesday, Nov. 14 and Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Joseph P. Echle Performing Arts Center at Southern Regional’s 9-10 building. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door. 

Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play is the story of Elwood P. Dowd, a polite and friendly man with a very strange best friend – a 6-foot, 3½-inch invisible rabbit named Harvey.
