  • Chesapeake Arts Center & National Players Presents:

    The Giver

    Saturday, October 1, 2016

    Show 10:30am

    in Hammonds Lane Theatre

    Tickets:$10.00; click here to purchase ticket

    The Giver explores a “utopian” future of sameness, where young Jonas inherits an unusual career: to receive and keep the memories of his community’s past. Throughout lessons with his elder predecessor, The Giver teaches Jonas of love, war, and all of life’s unknown joys and pains. As his oppressive world continues unchanged, Jonas must decide whether to keep these new secrets or upend his community. This modern classic explores the risks and rewards of a full life. The Giver speaks to all ages, from elementary audiences to adults, and National Players is proud to produce it for the first time this year.

    You won’t want to miss this pre-event reception! Get an insider’s view of Hamlet by watching the National Players rehearse stage combat scenes in a “fight call” and join the CAC for a special tribute to Joan Cadden, whose fierce advocacy led to the creation of the Chesapeake Arts Center, the only major cultural institution in Northern Anne Arundel County. In Hamlet, the prince of Denmark returns home from school to find his family life in ruins—his father dead, his mother remarried, and his uncle (now step-father) ruling the country. When his father’s ghost appears with dire announcements, Hamlet struggles to redefine his life and find his way forward. Jason King Jones, Artistic Director of National Players directs his ninth production for the company with Hamlet. It also marks the first time in 32 years that National Players has produced Shakespeare’s most prolific play.
