“Harvey,” directed by Karen Stacks, is the story of Elwood Dowd and the comedic misunderstandings surrounding his best friend, an imaginary six-foot tall rabbit. What makes this show extra-special is that the cast and crew have decided to dedicate the show to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and they will be collecting donations at the box office for families who were affected by the storm. In addition, since the show centers on an animal, the students wanted to do something for animals in the community so during the run of the show the cast and crew are conducting a pet food drive for a non-profit organization called PawsCo, which provides low-income families with pets the means to get those pets the medical attention and supplies they need. The Legacy Drama Department believes that every person can use their talent to reach out to their community and to help those in need. It’s the student’s way of giving back and saying “thanks” for supporting the arts and coming to watch their shows.
The show is October 21st at 6:30pm in the Legacy High School Auditorium. Tickets are $8.00 at the box office.
