Harvey From page 1 of America's Cinematic classics will be brought to life on stage. The live production of "Harvey" will be performed in the Avalon School Auditorium. "Harvey," by Mary Chase, was made famous by the incredible talent of Jimmy Stewart. In fact, his performance in "Harvey," was arguably the role that set Stewart apart and made his a household name and drives his personality into our collec- tive memory to this day. "Harvey" is the hysterical story of a like- able and kind man named Elwood who Kristen Walker befriends an imaginary 6-foot tall rabbit named Harvey. Or is he only visible to those who need him? The audience watches as poor Elwood is thought to be crazy and should be com- mitted to the sanitarium. The fun ensues when the wrong Rosie Taylor member of the family is institutionalized. "It truly is a heartwarming tale of what real- ly matters in life," said director Brannock. For the performance in Avalon next week, the cast is made up of all locals. "They're our friends, neighbors and coworkers," Brannock said. "It is such a great opportunity to come out and support their efforts, while supporting live theater." Let's meet some of them: Kristen Walker was born and raised on the island. Her first acting role was in high school where she played opposite of Sean Brannock in the production "Perils of Priscilla." Over the years Kristen has performed in other Avalon Community productions. R o s i e Taylor has worked for the Catalina Island Conservancy David Hart for the past six years. Rosie has performed in"The Music Man .... Fools" and "Arsenic and Old Lace" with the Avalon group. She is also a radio DJ for local radio station K.I.S.L., for the past 3 years. You can hear her show - Catalina Pinky's Night on Thursday evenings from 6- 8 p.m. David Hart is the newest mem- ber of the Recreation Department staff. He worked for the Avalon School System for eight years and is the coach for the Avalon High School varsity Lady Lancers bas- ketball team. David has performed in many of the adult theater pro- ductions in addition to the High School's Theater Department shows. Rich Zanelli (affectionately known as Mr. Z) works in the Educational Department of the Catalina Island Conservancy, helping the community, to create and nur- ture the future Rieh Zanelli generation of stewards. Rich has performed in all of the group's productions since he arrived on the island 11 years ago. Rich claims to have talked to animals - visible or otherwise - even before being involved in "Harvey." Tyler Sabicer has performed in a few high school productions but this is his debut with the commu- nity theater group. Tyler is home from college for the summer, he is attending Washington and Lee University in Virginia. He is working as a fuel dock attendant but to impress the girls he says he is a Marine Fuel Technician. "Next week we'll introduce you to the rest of the cast" Brannock said. "One of the joys of liv- ing in a commu- nity like ours is being able to a fun event with your family and Tyler Sabicer knowing the people on stage personally, while allowing them to transport .you into a different space and time as their story unfolds." The performances will be held in the school auditorium, Friday July 25 and Saturday July 26 will be at 7 p.m. There will be a Sunday Matinee on July 27 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and prices are $8 for adults and $5 for students. For additional information you can call Sean Brannock at 310-595-6714. "See you on the stage and thank you for supporting local live theater," Brannock said.
