The CRT production features company member Jayson Shanafelt as Elwood P. Dowd and Portland favorites Tobias Andersen as Dr. Chumley and Amanda Valley as Elwood’s sister, Veta Simmons. Doren Elias directs this lighthearted comedy about a loveable eccentric whose best friend is a 6-foot tall invisible rabbit whom he introduces to everyone.

CRT’s “Harvey” also features Annie Rimmer, Cyndy Smith-English, Michael Mitchell, Nathan Crosby, William Wilson and Kevin Newland Scott.

“Harvey,” which opened on Broadway in 1944 and won both the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for best play, runs through July 21.

CRT performances take place Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. All performances are in the Osterman Theatre at Clackamas Community College. The low-price preview is June 27.

Season tickets and single tickets may be purchased at clackamasrep.org or by calling 503-594-6047.

CRT continues its season in August with “Kiss Me Kate” and concludes with the farce “The 39 Steps” in late September.
