Fall Play Shows Student Talent
The Savio Theatre department presented Harvey by American playwright, Mary Chase last Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10, at 7:00 PM in the Savio Gym.
Harvey is a 1944 play, by American playwright Mary Chase. Chase received the Pulitzer Prize for the play in 1945. The play has been adapted for film and television, most notably in a 1950 film starring actor, James Stewart.
This year there were 27 students that participated as cast and crew in the Fall play. The cast brought the play to life with their talents in this whimsical show about individuality and kindness. The show was well attended at both performances, and the audience enjoyed the show, often laughing out loud at the humorous delivery of the script!
