The talented young cast members of The Giver deliver a powerful story set in a seemingly utopian world where there is no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment. However, individuality is discouraged and feelings such as pain, fear and love no longer exist. When young Jonas turns 12, he’s chosen for special training with The Giver, learning to be the keeper of memories for his community. But during the training he discovers the contradictions of his supposedly perfect world and grows determined to regain power over his own destiny. Based on the Newbery Award-winning children’s novel by Lois Lowry and adapted for the stage by Eric Cobel, this Youth Performance Company production of The Giver can be seen at the Howard Conn Fine Arts Center.
