In the Wings: The Giver. Meet Aaron Brehm.

Aaron Brehm plays Jonas in The Giver, the second production of the 2008-2009 Civic Youth Theatre season. The script by Eric Coble is based on the book of the same name by Lois Lowry.

Aaron has performed in several Civic shows including Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, which was directed by Brent Wick, the director of The Giver.

"I really liked working with Brent, and that's one reason I wanted to be involved with The Giver," he said.

Aaron explained what Jonas goes through during the course of the play.

"At the beginning of the play, Jonas hangs out with his friends," he said. "When he goes to the Giver, he's receiving memories and learning about the way things were before 'Sameness.' He starts thinking things should be the way they were before 'Sameness.'"

The Giver opens December 5 and runs each Friday, Saturday and Sunday through December 14. Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 7:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday afternoon shows begin at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth.

For more information about the show or to order tickets, please call 765-423-PLAY (7529) or visit Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette's Web site.
