“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”
Aslan's on the move! By popular demand, 9th Hour Theatre Company brings back the Deep Magic of Narnia to the Ottawa stage once again with the beloved characters and timeless story by C.S. Lewis. Rediscover the magic of Narnia this Christmas through the magic of theatre with this classic tale of good and evil, talking animals, the bravery of children, and a sacrifice of love.
Check out a review of our 2018 production by Rachel Feddema called Waiting for Aslan.
