We are seeking a multi-cultural cast of actors ages ten through adult for this non-musical performing at the Helgeson Learning Lab Theatre. Adapted from the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry.
Jonas’ world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. When Jonas turns twelve he is chosen to train with The Giver—the keeper of the community’s collective memories. For the first time he experiences the feeling of love, as well as the pain of hunger, loneliness, and disease that the community has suppressed. Jonas must decide if eradicating pain is worth sacrificing joy.
