What are dreams? For a troubled real-world boy named John, they're bits aud pieces of happy memories that erase his terrible nightmares. But he never sees the dream-givers, the fantastical creatures who gather memories and whisper them into the ears of those who need them most. Littlest One is a new dream-giver, and John is her first human. She must remember to be very quiet and not flutter! But can she gather enough happy memories before the nightmares take over John's world? A fanciful-and haunting-story from the boundless imagination of two-time Newbery winner Lois Lowry.

SCR's Junior Players, chosen by audition after at least two years in the Theatre Conservatory, portray all the dream-givers (ancient, thin, and fastidious!) and all the humans (plus, the dog Toby) in this poignant story of hope and friendship-and happy dreams.

All students perform in all productions, however they move from lead roles to supporting roles depending on the team.  If you need more information please contact Education@scr.org.

Author Lois Lowry was born on March 20, 1937, in Honolulu, Hawaii. She published her first novel, A Summer to Die, in 1977. After this serious drama, Lowry showed her lighter side with 1979's Anastasia Krupnik, which became the first in a series of humorous books. She won her first Newbery Award for the 1989 novel Number the Stars. In 1993, Lowry received the honor a second time for The Giver, which would eventually become a 2014 film. More recent works include Son (2012) and Gooney Bird and All Her Charms (2013).
