A stage adaptation of “The Giver” comes to the Omaha Community Playhouse in a string of performances.

Its story introduces what seems like a perfect world with no war – but peace comes at a price. The strange truth unfolds through the eyes of Jonas, a kid who accepts a frightening responsibility. (Soma)

Eric Coble wrote the adaptation based on the Newbery Award-winning source material by Lois Lowry.

Fans of the novel and newcomers alike should take this wild ride.
