The Giver

Cody Smither and Spencer Raymond, along with Sikeston Little Theatre, are proud to present to you The Giver. Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Lois Lowry, The Giver is a story of a boy named Jonas who happens to live in a society that is being controlled by the rules and tradition of The Elders. Through his wisdom and mannerisms, Jonas is selected as the Receiver of Memory, a post that distinguishes him from others and gives him authority.
