Characters Myrtle Mae and Elwood look on while Wilson makes a concerned phone call to the clinic, during the KHS Drama Club’s performance of “Harvey.”

KALKASKA – The main character in the play put on by the Kalkaska High School Drama Club did not need to be cast, because the audience never saw or heard him.

“It’s really hard acting like someone’s there who’s not, but it’s definitely fun nevertheless,” said freshman Ethan Tracey. Tracey’s character, Elwood P. Dowd, is the best friend of Harvey, a six-foot rabbit.

“Harvey,” a comedy by Mary Chase, is a story about Elwood’s family struggling with his invisible friend, and the comical mishaps of unsuccessfully trying to admit him into an asylum.

The drama club performed the play Nov. 16-18 at the high school.
