"Harvey"
Friday, February 23
The Forum Theatre

Get ready to experience a world of imagination with a dose of nostalgia in this family-friendly, comedy that is one funny bunny of a tale (tail?)! Harvey, a well-known classic in American theatre, is a comedy about the friendship between Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend Harvey the Pooka – an invisible, six-foot-tall rabbit! When his sister Veta finds his behavior no longer socially acceptable, she tries to place him into a mental institution, only to have a comedy of errors ensue. Elwood’s easygoing nature and kind heart quickly draws everyone into his whimsical world of warmth and joy. Through Elwood and his pal Harvey, we see the true meaning of loyalty and friendship.

Performances are Thursday to Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.forumtheatre.org.

SEA MONSTERS

When strange bones are discovered in a muddy Kansas river bank, paleontologists set out to investigate a mystery buried in time. Through ultra-realistic 3-D computer animation Sea Monsters takes audiences back to the Late Cretaceous, when the sea was dominated by giant marine reptiles, some as large as present-day whales. Get up close and personal with some of the dinosaur age’s most fearsome marine reptiles.

Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure transports the audience back to the Late Cretaceous, when a great inland sea divided North America. The film connects paleontology digs from around the globe into a compelling story about scientists working as detectives to answer questions about this ancient and mysterious ocean world.

Stunning photo-realistic computer-generated animation transports audiences back to the Late Cretaceous, when a great inland ocean divided North America in two. The film will follow a curious and adventurous dolichorynchops (familiarly known as a ‘dolly’) as she travels through life’s stages, experiencing the world from her spot near the bottom of the food chain. Along the way, she’ll encounter long-necked pleisosaurs, giant turtles, enormous fish, ferocious flippered crocs, fierce sharks, and the most dangerous sea monsters of all, the mosasaurs.
