The Diviners presented by Clayton Youth Theater @ The Clayton Center
Feb 21 @ 7:00 pm

Clayton Youth Theater presents The Diviners, Thursday-Saturday, February 21-23, at 7 PM.

Winner of the American College Theatre Festival, The Diviners, is the story of a mentally challenged boy and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher. In the fictional town of Zion, Indiana, during the Great Depression, a widowed farmer is raising his teenage son Buddy, whose brain was damaged during a near drowning. Because of this experience, the boy is terrified of water, yet he has also developed a certain brand of giftedness. When C.C. Showers, a former preacher, comes to the farm seeking employment and food, a special (and ultimately tragic) bond develops between the two. Rated PG for mild language and tragedy.

Tickets for The Diviners are $12 for adults and​ $6 for students 18 and under, plus sales tax and fees. All seating for these performances is reserved.

Let CYT plan date night for you! Enjoy dinner at Clayton Steakhouse and then head to The Clayton Center to see Clayton Youth Theater’s production of “The Diviners.”
