I tend not to write much about the Regatta here in PopCult because, well……
I’ve sort of got this history with the Regatta. But I may venture out to a couple of Regatta events this year, if the rain doesn’t wipe out this dinosaur of a festival. One of those will be the funeral parade. Kevin Pauley, of No Pants Players, IWA East Coast, Kanawha Players and American Heart Association fame, sends word that Kanawha Players will be participating in the parade in a special way this year. They’re going to promote their upcoming production of the classic play, “Harvey,” about a man and his imaginary pal, a six-foot rabbit.According to Kevin: “We will have two of our volunteers dressed up as white rabbits and about 10 volunteers wearing shirts that read “Have you met my friend, Harvey?” to help promote the October production of “Harvey.” They’ll be tossing out Mardi Gras beads and flyers for the show offering “buy one, get one free” admissions!”
So there you have your heads up, people. Go to the funeral parade, look for the giant rabbits, and then get a flyer from one of the attendant rabbit-groupies. You can get two tickets to see a great local production of a classic play for the price of one! Plus, there will be beads!
If you can’t make it out to the funeral parade, you can find a copy of the flyer, with the two-for-one discount, exclusively for PopCult readers by following the jump….
