These past few weeks have been super busy for me. I acted in the Drama Club’s production of Harvey and spent a lot of time in the theatre preparing for the performances this past weekend.
Harvey is a play about a man named Elwood P. Dowd, whose best friend is an invisible rabbit. I had the pleasure of playing the character of Eldwood. It was a lot of fun playing such a loveable character. Elwood is a genuinely nice person throughout the show and really cares for everyone.
I also designed sound for the show. Basically, I gathered up the required sound effects, such as a phones ringing and buzzers buzzing. I found music to play during scene transitions as well. It was interesting to look up music from the 1940s when the play takes place.
Although the process was a lot of work I already miss the show. This was my last full acting performance at St. Mike’s and the theatre has been a central part of my life for all four years here. I am thankful that my mom and aunt were able to see the performance and hope I was able to help people enjoy this quirky show. Thanks you to everyone who came out and saw it!
