Barton Theatre holding auditions for 'Harvey'

The Barton Community College Theatre Department will hold open auditions for its fall production of “Harvey” from 4-6 p.m. Aug. 20 and 21 in the Fine Arts Auditorium, or by arrangement with Theatre Director Dr. Rick Abel. Those who wish to audition can show up anytime during the allotted hours on either night.

The Theatre Department will be casting all roles and all technical positions. No preparation is necessary, and all are invited to audition. Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Oct. 5 and 6 in the Fine Arts Auditorium. 

“Harvey” is a 1945 Pulitzer Prize-winning play about Elwood P. Dowd, a mild-mannered pleasant man who claims his best friend is a pooka, an Irish folklore creature which is considered to be a bringer of both good and bad fortune, in the form of an invisible six-foot-one-and-a-half-inch-tall rabbit.

For more information or to arrange a separate audition time, contact Abel at or 620-792-9333.
