Cambridge-Isanti students excited to present ‘Harvey’

Cambridge-Isanti High School presents the 3-Act production of ‘Harvey’ by Mary Chase.

It is the classic tale of Elwood P. Dowd who, to his family’s frustration, sees a 6-foot rabbit that no one else can see. And every time his family tries to get Elwood some help, it always backfires on them and Harvey, the rabbit, just keeps showing up.

The lead characters are Jordan Zurn as Elwood P. Dowd and Mikaela Kase as Veta Louise Simmons, Elwood’s sister. Both Zurn and Kase received outstanding awards from the Hennepin Stage Company for their performances in “Seussical” this fall.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. Tickets are available at the door only at the performances on Thursday, April 11 at 7 p.m.; Friday, April 12 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, April 13 at 2 p.m.; and Sunday, April 14 at 2 p.m. Notice that both Saturday and Sunday’s performances are matinees.
