Audition Description

Valatie Youth Theater Announces
Open Auditions for
Harvey by Mary Chase

June 20th 6pm to 8pm
June 21 2pm to 4pm
Grades 9 through 12.

Show Synopsis: When Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society party, his sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter and their family from future embarrassment. Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also! The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but the truth comes out eventually. When he shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood’s delusion has had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.

#1 Got major roles in TWO movies 07-07-06 Well Explore Talent...you've done it again! I just came back from a screentest in Washington, D.C. Before returning home I was offered major roles in not one, but TWO movies and I am being considered for the LEAD in a third. -- Thanks Explore Talent! - Cheryl Denise #2 Been booked for a film within one week! Thank you so much Explore Talent! I have been with you for only about a week and have already been booked for a film! It is so exciting to check onto your site and find out that nearly every day I have been either given gigs for which I can submit myself or better yet, by the time I get the information, you have already submitted me! The best thing about it is that these are not just castings where you are just a barely visible extra if you are lucky. They are quality castings with real credits. Even with an agent, you often times are not going to get this level of activity right from the start. You are great, how do you do it?! Thank you and Best Regards! -- Cheryl Denise
