Damariscotta — Midcoast actor and educator Jennifer True of Cushing appears in Lincoln County Community Theater’s production of “Harvey,” which has final performances Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., Nov. 16 through 18 at the downtown Lincoln Theater. Tickets are $12, $5 for children.

In Mary Chase's 1945 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, the affable Elwood P. Dowd (Stephen Wallace) claims to have an invisible friend, Harvey, whom Elwood describes as a 6-foot-1-inch rabbit. Elwood proudly introduces Harvey to everyone he meets, much to the dismay of his social-climbing sister Veta (Ann Foskett). She decides his eccentric behavior is enough to have him committed to a sanitarium, thus sparing her and her daughter Myrtle Mae (True) from future embarrassment.

Friendship — even the presumably imaginary kind — prevails in this classic screwball comedy. Also featured in the cast are Bill Vaughan as Dr. Chumley, Mallory Adams as Nurse Kelly, Todd Bolint  as Dr. Sanderson, Jane Gear as Betty Sanderson, Charlie Arksey as sanitarium strongman Wilson, Kent Cooper as Judge Gaffney, Sunny Kirkham as Mrs. Chauvenet and Michael Rowe as a cabbie. The LCCT show is directed by Al D'Andrea.
