Review for The Giver:

The Giver is a story about a young man named Jonas who is assigned a special and unique job within his community, and, in his training, he learns that his community is not as perfect as it once seemed to him. His journey shows him the importance of feelings and the value of love.

The cast features accomplished local actor and UTC theatre graduate Bruce Shaw in the title role as The Giver, alongside Chattanooga State students Tris Haugh as Jonas, Daniel Alvarez as Father, Destinie Lanier as Mother, Bria Rennick as Lily, Shannon Mitchell as Fiona, Jacob Allred as Asher, and Mary Beth Mangrum as The Chief Elder. Jennifer Arbogast Wilson directs, and Maggie Williams is production stage manager. 

The Giver is presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Inc. in Woodstock, Il.
