"On February 26 and 27, the Senior class presented their play, "Harvey." After two months of exciting preparation and much hard work the play, directed by Miss Golda and Tom Sherman, was deemed a complete success. Alan Feinstein and Donna Caplan were outstanding in the leading roles as Elwood Dowd and Veta Simmons. Julie Hinman and Steve Wood were excellent in their supporting roles of Myrtle Mae Simmons and Dr. Chumley. The play lent itself to moments of genuine emotion and high comedy and was enjoyed by everyone who attended."
