“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.”
9th Hour Theatre Company brings back the deep magic of Narnia to the Ottawa stage with the beloved characters and timeless story by C.S. Lewis. Rediscover the magic of Narnia through the magic of theatre with this classic tale of good and evil, talking animals, the bravery of children, and a sacrifice of love.
9th Hour was pleased to accept donations after every performance on behalf of our partnering charity OrKidstra, and ended up raising over $5,000 over the run of performances. OrKidstra is a social development program that empowers kids from under-served Ottawa communities by teaching life skills – such as teamwork, commitment, respect and pride in achievement – through playing and singing music together.
