Geronimo Productions: The Giver

Lois Lowry’s book, which this play is based on, has been on and off the banned books list for years. The story is a deeply human story. As he gains new knowledge and experiences, Jonas is forced to answer questions about what it means to be alive, the value of emotions and personalities, and the vital role of true, loving community. All of these questions and more are told through a story that will appeal to a variety of ages—children and preteens see themselves in Jonas, while parents and adults might empathize more with Jonas’ parents, the community leaders, or the Giver himself. It is a beautiful story about discovering one’s humanity and all the joy and pain that accompanies that.

Jayme Stone

Jayme Stone: The Lomax Project

Jayme Stone collaborated on this project with Grammy-award winning musicians like Time O’Brien and Julian Lage. The project was to revive, recycle and reimagine traditional music much of which exists today because of the field-recordings done by Alan Lomax. A folklorist and music pioneer, Lomax went across America to record musicians on porches, by the campfire and in living rooms. Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes, sea chants and gospel songs from well-known musicians and ordinary cowhands and fishermen are played together to weave a story roots music. Jayme Stone’s album and subsequent tour bring this music back to life and the collaborative efforts of these musicians and singers is magical to experience.
