What are dreams? For a troubled real-world boy named John, they're bits and 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.
