Elwood P. Dowd is a most affable man. His best friend is Harvey, a six foot, three-and-one-half inch rabbit, who he introduces to everyone he meets. Elwood's sister Veta, a social climber, finds his behavior too embarrassing - not to mention an impediment to finding a mate for her daughter, Myrtle Mae. Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium, but when they arrive at the hospital it's Veta who gets committed while the mild-mannered Elwood has a strange influence on the staff. But, before Elwood is to be given an injection that will make him a "perfectly normal human being", will Veta realize she'd rather have Elwood the same as always — carefree and kind — even if it also means living with Harvey?

About the Majestic
Locally-produced professional live theater since 1997
Before it was a live theater, local residents may remember the Majestic Theater as a movie house. It has since been renovated and reimagined to bring live performances to the West Springfield area, giving local performance and technical artists the opportunity to thrive.
Every season at the Majestic consists of five productions (including at least one musical) featuring local actors. In addition to the subscription season, the summer includes children's theater, concerts, plays, open mic nights, and improvisational comedy shows.
Recently named the best place to see live theater in the Pioneer Valley in the Valley Advocate Readers' Poll, the Majestic continues to offer great theater thanks to the support and generosity of its subscribers (we currently have over 4,800). Learn how you can become a subscriber today!
