Lynden Performing Art Guild Presents: Harvey

04/06/2015 - 04/26/2015 - All Day at Claire vg Thomas Theatre
655 Front Street

The Lynden Performing Arts Guild will offer 12 performances of an American classic, the heartwarming comedy Harvey, which has been delighting audiences for over 70 years. It’s the story of Elwood P. Dowd, an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall rabbit. Imaginary or not, Harvey exerts a strange influence on the characters in the play, and may have a similar effect on audience members!

Harvey opens on April 6, 2015 at the Claire vg Thomas Theatre in Lynden’s Dutch Village Mall, and runs through April 26. Performances are Thursday & Friday at 7:30, Saturday & Sunday at 2:00 pm.

Tickets are available on-line at www.brownpapertickets.com, as well as through the theatre box office, Tuesday through Friday from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Call 360-354-4425, or visit the theatre in person.  Tickets may also be purchased at the door, starting half an hour prior to curtain time. Prices: Adults $12.00, Students and Seniors $10.00, Children ages 4 – 8 $8.00.
