On Oct. 24, Mrs. Corcoran and Mrs. Crosby’s Enrichment class at Tryon Elementary School traveled to The Diane Wortham Theatre in Asheville to see the play “The Giver.“ The one-woman play was an adaptation of the novel, “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. “The Giver” is the science fiction story of a utopian society in the future. Prior to the play, the students read “The Giver” as part of an author study of Lois Lowry. After the play the students were treated to a backstage tour and were able to meet the actress and ask questions about the play and theater life. (photo submitted by Denise Corcoran)
