The Hampton Theatre Company will welcome Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy, "Harvey," as the first production of their 30th anniversary season. The production will run from Thursday, October 23rd, through Sunday, November 9th at the Quogue Community Hall.

From 1944 to 1949, "Harvey" took center stage on Broadway for 1,775 performances and in 1950 was adapted into a movie. The story showcases the life of Elwood P. Dowd, an affable man who befriends an invisible 6-foot tall rabbit. The play also follows Elwood's sister, Veta Louise Simmons, and her efforts to have her brother committed and thus unable to scare off suitors from her daughter, Myrtle Mae.

Matthew Conlon will take on the role of Elwood, Pamela Kern will play Veta, and Amanda Griemsmann will take on the role of Myrtle.

Shows will take place on Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. The Hampton Theatre Company will also offer dinner and theater packages through the Southampton, Westhampton Beach, Hampton Bays, and Quogue libraries.

The Quogue Community Hall is located at 125 Jessup Avenue in Quogue. For more information, visit www.hamptontheatre.org.
