Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014 15B ARTS E N T E RTA I N M E N T 'Harvey' comes to West End Theatre Comedy about man-size rabbit plays through Nov. 2 The West End Theatre in Quincy presents "Harvey," playing Oct. 23 - 25 and Oct. 30 - Nov. 1 at 7 p.m., and Oct. 26 and Nov. 2 at 2 p.m. Tickets, which cost $18 general admission and $15 students and seniors 65-plus, are on sale at Carey Candy Co., Epilog Books, dramaworks and online at The play stars Risa Nesbit, Janet Radke, Nate Dunn, Hannah Kingsland, Kim Carroll, Samantha Williams, Will Taylor, Jack Kuipers, David Riley, Kristina Marr, Bruce Williams and Earl Thompson. It is directed by Edie O'Connor and Tina Terrazas. "Harvey," a comedy, is about Elwood P. Dowd, a whimsical middle-aged man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey -- whom Elwood describes as a 6-foot, 3-1/2-inch-tall rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her and her daughter Myrtle Mae from future embarrassment. When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues. The young, handsome and very flirtatious Dr. "Harvey," by playwright Mary Chase, turns 70 this year. Photos courtesy dramaworks Sanderson commits Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When Elwood shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey, it seems that the -mild-mannered Elwood's delusion has had a strange influence on the staff, including sanitarium director Dr. Chumley. Only just before Elwood is to be given an injection that will make him into a "perfectly normal human being" does Veta realize that she'd rather have Elwood the same as he's always been -- carefree and kind -- even if it means living with Harvey. It is the 70th anniversary of "Harvey," written in 1944 by playwright Mary Chase. Chase received the Pulitzer Prize for drama for the work in 1945. Harvey premiered on Broadway in 1944, at the 48th Street Theatre, and closed in 1949 after 1,775 performances. "Harvey" has also been adapted for film and television several times, most notably in a 1950 film starring James Stewart. Award open to women who head the household Women who serve as the primary wage earners for their families and seek financial assistance to continue their education or receive training can now apply for the Soroptimist Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women (formerly the Soroptimist Women's Opportunity Awards). Applications are available at the Feather River College Counseling Center or by contacting Joyce Scroggs at 283-1195. The application deadline is Nov. 15. Quincy Soroptist will provide a $1,000 cash grant-to its award recipient, who will then advance to the Sierra Nevada Region level, where recipients could receive up to an additional $5,000. The program culminates with three finalist $10,000 awards at the national level. Recipients can use the Live Your Dream Award to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education or additional skills and training. This includes tuition, books, child care, transportation or any other education-related expense. The Live Your Dream Award provides more than $1.6 million in cash grants to head-of-household women in need each year. Since the program's inception in 1972, approximately $30 million has helped tens of thousands of women achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families. A study conducted by a research organization confirmed the impact of this program, finding that it improves the recipients' quality of life; builds their confidence; strengthens their self-determination; and makes them want to help others. Helping women with concrete support has the demonstrated effect of leading to stronger communities, nations and the world. Making juice with Ray Nichol's old-fashioned apple press is a family affair. All are welcome to bring apples and juice containers to the upcoming event. Annual Apple JOLT set for Saturday The third annual Apple JOLT (Juice 'em Or Lose Them), organized by Transition Quincy, will take place Saturday, Oct. 25, from 11 a.m. to 4p.m. at the white house across the street from Quincy Natural Foods. The community is invited to scour Quincy for apples and bring them to the event for juicing. Volunteers will help to crush and squeeze the apples into juice. Participants are encouraged to bring clean bottles in which to carry home the finished juice to enjoy. Some apples and containers will be available for those who come empty handed. Folks are also welcome to bring snacks to sharewith fellow juicers. "There are many apple trees that are not harvested each year -- not quite so many this year but enough," say organizers. "Instead of letting them go to waste, knock on the nearest door to enquire if the owner would like you to harvest the forgotten fruit." This event is sponsored by Transition Quincy and Quincy Natural Foods. All are welcome.

Main St, Quincy ol 283-5433 THE WATERFALL The chilly mist sprayed by the waterfall Became a prism for a rainbow's arc That shimmered, falling from the mountain wall, Perhaps the way it shone from Noah's ark. There was a grassy knoll where, hand in hand, They watched the ever-changing iridescent mist And then, enchanted by this wonderland, They sat beside the fall and then they kissed. How long they sat enthralled they could not tell For time had stopped and neither wished to leave And neither wished to break this magic spell Where they became like Adam and his Eve. And though they left their dear, Edenic waterfall, For all the years to come, that scene they would recall.

COMING SOON TO YOUR TOWN HALL THEATRE DOLPHIN TALE 2 Fri., Oct. 24 - Mon., Oct. 27 7pm Show 4pm Sunday Matinee Rated PG * 107 min. Family Friendly Drama Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery--thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail--made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie Dolphin Tale. It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fi.ght is not over. Winter's surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins' social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.
