Shaw Festival extends run of Harvey

Media Release #18

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, July 21, 2010…Elwood Dowd and his best friend Harvey will continue to delight and charm audiences for an additional 14 performances at the Royal George Theatre. A hit with audiences and critics alike, the Mary Chase Pulitzer Prize-winning play will continue to run until November 14.

Upon making the announcement, Artistic Director Jackie Maxwell noted: “this wonderful gem has been performing to sold-out audiences since previews began in April; we’re thrilled to offer this extension so even more theatre-lovers can enjoy it.”

Directed by Joseph Ziegler, Harvey features Peter Krantz as Elwood Dowd, the mild-mannered eccentric who seems to know everyone in town; Mary Haney as his sister Veta Simmons, Norman Browning as Dr Chumley, as well as Guy Bannerman, Diana Donnelly, Zarrin Darnell-Martin and Gray Powell, with Donna Belleville, Jennifer Dzialoszynski, Peter Millard, Jennifer Phipps and Tim Ziegler

Beginning November 2, the additional performances are as follows:

  • Tuesday through Friday at 2 p.m. for two weeks ($23 student and $40 senior tickets available)
  • Saturday, November 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 7 and 14 at 2 p.m.

The Shaw Festival 2010 season runs until November 14 and also features An Ideal Husband, The Women, The Cherry Orchard, One Touch of Venus, The Doctor’s Dilemma, John Bull’s Other Island, Half an Hour, Age of Arousal and Serious Money.
