OCP Looking to “Give” Some Roles in January

Omaha Community Playhouse Proudly Announces Auditions for:

The Giver

adapted by Eric Coble from the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry

Production dates April 15 – May 8, 2022

The Giver – Jonas’ world is perfect. Everything is under control and safe. There is no war or fear or pain. There are also no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. But when Jonas turns 12, he is chosen for special training from The Giver – to receive and keep the memories of the community. The Giver is the only person who holds the memories of real pain and joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life – and the hypocrisy of his utopian world.
