Eau Claire Children's Theatre is holding auditions for its production of "The Giver" at 5:30 p.m. Sunday and Monday at The Oxford, 1814 Oxford Ave. 

The show follows Jonas as he turns 12 and is chosen for a special training from The Giver, allowing him to learn the truth about life and growing up, growing wise and controlling his own destiny.

Ten roles are available for named characters and an ensemble cast of community members and schoolmates. 

Auditions will be cold readings from the script to be read with another actor. Rehearsals begin Nov. 22. 

There will be three shows scheduled for Friday, Jan. 4, at Pablo Center at the Confluence, 128 Graham Ave.
