  • A Literature to Life® stage presentation of
    The Giver

    Dec 06, 2017 @ 10:30 AM
    Location:

    A Literature to Life® stage presentation of
    The Giver
    By Lois Lowry
    Performed by Aurea Tomeski
    Adapted and Directed by Elise Thoron
    A Program Of Young Audiences, New York

    This Newbery-Award winning, best-selling book for young readers has become the gold standard for the genre. Told with deceptive simplicity, this is the provocative story of Jonas, a boy who experiences something incredible and undertakes something impossible. In the telling, audiences question every value that they have taken for granted and reexamine their most deeply held beliefs. This sixty minute solo-performance focuses on the relationship between the young Jonas and his mentor, The Giver.  

    Admission: $10.00 General Admission

    Please call the University Performing Arts office at 973.720.3178 for ticket reservations and information.
