Based on The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, this musical adaptation is fun for the whole family, featuring unforgettable songs and popular characters. The story begins with the land of Narnia frozen in a perpetual winter of darkness and despair, seemingly all under the dominion of the White Witch, Queen Jadis, including the intelligent talking animals once ruled by the great and majestic lion Aslan, King of Narnia. Though Aslan is often absent from the land (so that his very existence is doubted by some), he returns when the need for him is greatest, bringing with him an end to the long winter, and making an ultimate sacrifice of love, culminating in a battle between good and evil. Entering at a moment of high adventure in the story are four children, transported from our world through a magical wardrobe.
Presented as part of the 2014 Season "Into the Wardrobe" celebrating the works of C.S. Lewis 50 years after his death.
