Consider This is an organization dedicated to spreading appreciation for the performing arts and providing the opportunity for local aspiring actors to audition and participate in a wide variety of dramas and comedies performed for local families and neighbors. Our productions consist of a mixture of high quality performances including comedy, drama, murder mystery, musicals and talent showcases. We invite everyone to come to our performances and try out for acting or support positions for future productions.

Lots of exciting things are happening at Consider This! Shows, drama classes and special projects involve many people making the magic happen. Every year people volunteer their time and talents to keep Consider This Community Theater running. Whether your talents are in onstage, backstage, in the office, or any of the numerous other volunteer positions, we think you’ll find that Consider This is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you!

Our next production is…

March 2 – 4
March 9 – 11

Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic 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. When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues. The young, handsome, and very flirtatious Dr. 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, and you know what bastards they are!” (in the words of a taxi cab driver who has become involved in the proceedings) does Veta realize that she would rather have Elwood the same as he has always been — carefree and kind — even if it means living with Harvey.
