Broomfield, CO - The fall play, HARVEY, was chosen months before Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, but the students of the Legacy High School drama department took the coincidence as a sign that it was their duty to take action. Which is why they are dedicating their show to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and will be collecting donations at the box office for the families affected by the storm.
But their generosity doesn't stop there. HARVEY, directed by Karen Stacks, is the story of Elwood Dowd and the comedic misunderstandings surrounding his best friend, an imaginary six-foot tall rabbit. Since the show centers on an animal, the students also wanted to do something for animals in their own community, so during the run of the show the cast and crew will be conducting a pet food drive for a non-profit organization called PawsCo, which provides low-income families with pets the means to get those pets the medical attention and supplies they need.
The Legacy Drama Club believes that every person can use their talent to reach out to their community and to help those in need, a belief they set in motion last Spring with their musical, Sweeney Todd, collecting donations for Broomfield Fish. "It is the student's way of giving back and saying thanks for coming to see their shows and for supporting the arts," said a drama club parent volunteer. Come see the show and show your support.
HARVEY plays October 20th & 21st at 6:30pm at the Legacy High School Auditorium located at 2701 West 136th Avenue, Broomfield, CO 80020. Tickets are $8.00 at the box office.
