The Giver

Chesapeake Arts Center & National Players Presents:
The Giver
Saturday, October 1, 2016
Show 10:30am
in Hammonds Lane Theatre
Tickets:$10.00

The Giver explores a “utopian” future of sameness, where young Jonas inherits an unusual career: to receive and keep the memories of his community’s past. Throughout lessons with his elder predecessor, The Giver teaches Jonas of love, war, and all of life’s unknown joys and pains. As his oppressive world continues unchanged, Jonas must decide whether to keep these new secrets or upend his community. This modern classic explores the risks and rewards of a full life. The Giver speaks to all ages, from elementary audiences to adults, and National Players is proud to produce it for the first time this year.

This performance is supported in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council. To discover more about Maryland State Arts Council grants and how they impact Maryland's arts sector, visit msac.org."

You won’t want to miss this pre-event reception! Get an insider’s view of Hamlet by watching the National Players rehearse stage combat scenes in a “fight call” and join the CAC for a special tribute to Joan Cadden, whose fierce advocacy led to the creation of the Chesapeake Arts Center, the only major cultural institution in Northern Anne Arundel County.

In Hamlet, the prince of Denmark returns home from school to find his family life in ruins—his father dead, his mother remarried, and his uncle (now step-father) ruling the country. When his father’s ghost appears with dire announcements, Hamlet struggles to redefine his life and find his way forward. Jason King Jones, Artistic Director of National Players directs his ninth production for the company with Hamlet. It also marks the first time in 32 years that National Players has produced Shakespeare’s most prolific play.

in Studio 194 Theatre
Free Admission!

Mike Kaminski is a 1965 graduate of Brooklyn Park High School. After serving in the Air Force in Southeast Asia, Vietnam and Washington, D.C., he worked for the Bureau of Customs in Washington as a Graphic Art Illustrator before joining the Baltimore City Police Department in 1973. Mike was assigned to Western District after graduation from the academy where he quickly learned “there are laws and then there are rules”.

After the police strike in 1974, Mike resigned from Baltimore City and became an Anne Arundel County Police Officer. Eventually, he was assigned to the Vice and Narcotics Unit. His years and experiences as a police officer and undercover detective are the primary basis of his book, LIFE AFTER RUSSIAN ROULETTE.

When he resigned from the police department in 1979, Mike created a private investigative agency. In 1985, he moved to Pennsylvania and eventually entered Lancaster Theological Seminary in 1986.

In his journey through life, Mike became an ordained minister working in parish ministry, created and published two magazines, has written books on the Sikh Faith and finally wrote and published his true story, LIFE AFTER RUSSIAN ROULETTE, a psychological thriller based on true accounts about his life as a police officer and undercover detective with both Baltimore City and Anne Arundel County.

Currently, Mike Kaminski is under contract with a producer and screenwriter in Los Angeles that want to create a TV series and possible movie book and life story. He is working on the pilot episode for the series.

After his wife died in 2005, Mike created an organization and memorial fund in memory of her that works with community awareness and education to issues pertaining to domestic violence and sexual abuse. He also has a workshop called “Perception of Self” and is a public speaker. Part of his workshop and topics pertain to his alcoholism, addiction, recovery, depression and suicidal ideations during the years he was a police officer.

Mike Kaminski lives in a small, quiet community north of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with his five cats. He has degrees in Criminal Justice and Political Science. He also has a Masters degree in Theology. You can learn more about Mike by going to his website, www.michaelbkaminski.com .
