North Putnam thespian Troupe No. 1478 will present the play "Harvey" at times to be determined by whether North Putnam wins the football game on Friday, Nov. 9.

Admission will be $3 pre-sale and $4 at the door of the high school auditorium. The show is directed by Linda Gjesvold with assistance from Serena Crum.

Elwood P. Dowd (Matt Willard) and his best friend Harvey, an invisible six-foot white rabbit, are driving Elwood's sister Veta (Amber Beams) and niece Myrtle Mae (Meagan Murphy) to distraction.

In an effort to regain a normal life, Veta tries to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. Dr. Sanderson (Jordan Wolfe) mistakenly lets Elwood go and locks Veta away.

It takes the efforts of Dr. Chumley (Cody Abell), Nurse Kelly (Cari Deyo), Judge Gaffney (Amber Jones), and attendant Duane Wilson (Kenny Brumback) to rectify the situation.

Will Elwood be given an injection of the special formula to make him just a normal human being? Come and find out.

Other cast members include: Rachael Smith as Mrs. Batty Chumley, Jessica Hubbard as Mrs. Chauvenet, Brandi Powers as E.J. Loffren, and Harley Carnes as Miss. Johnson.

Working on various crews are Rachel Kientz, Katie Lasiter, Rachel Kolcheck, Emily Haas, Shayla Fish, Katlyn Lawyer, Tasha Brewer, and Kristina Buchanan.

Show dates: If NPHS loses the game on Nov. 2 the show will be Friday, Nov. 9, and Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m.

If NPHS wins the game on Nov. 2, and they play again the following Friday, Nov. 11, the show will be Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m.

If NPHS wins the game on Nov. 2 and they play again the following Saturday, Nov. 11, the show will be Friday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m.
