OTA to host auditions for ‘Harvey’

Auditions for the popular comedy “Harvey” by Mary Chase will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday Aug. 14, and at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16, in the Gathering Hall of Olympic Theatre Arts Center, 414 N. Sequim Ave., Sequim.

Having premiered on Broadway in 1944, “Harvey” won a Pulitzer Prize the following year. The comedy’s plot centers around an affable man who has an imaginary companion — a 6-foot rabbit named Harvey. The play calls for five women and six men ranging in age from 25-65. According to “Harvey” director, Olivia Shea, auditions are open to anyone who wishes to attend. Shea has asked that those who would like to be part of the production team also come to one of the auditions.

“Harvey” is the Second Main Stage production of OTA’s 2014-2015 season and opens Nov. 7. The comedy is performed during three weekends, closing on Nov. 23.

Scripts for “Harvey” auditions are available at OTA’s office. A copy of the play also is on reserve at the Sequim Library.

For more information about the coming production, call Shea at 683-8150 or OTA at 683-7326.
