Welcome

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in City Theatre of Independence. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. Everything you see on stage as well as behind the scenes is produced by volunteers who are members of the local community.

Our mission is to provide an equal opportunity for individuals to actively participate and learn about live theatre production and theatre company operations; thereby providing a live entertainment experience for our theatre patrons.

We welcome new participants and members and encourage anyone interested in taking part to contact us. We hope you will consider becoming a contributor to our organization either by getting involved with your time, or by making a donation or even becoming a sponsor. There are also opportunities to volunteer at various fundraisers or performances.

We produce four plays and one musical each season. We also hold an annual Playwright Festival that features original works of ten-minute plays. At the end of each season, we celebrate with an awards banquet.

You can find more about all of these opportunities through out our website.

      SYNOPSIS: 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.
