Lewis classic, “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”, “Narnia” is a musical which draws you into the enchanted world filled with creatures, spirits and talking animals and deals with the battle between good and evil.

Narnia is ruled by a great lion, the majestic King Aslan but, in his absence, the evil White Witch has seized power and imposed an unending winter, one which never leads to Christmas.  Four English school children, evacuated from their home during World War II go to stay with their Uncle.  While exploring their new home, they unexpectedly plunge through the magical wardrobe and come across Narnia, a place covered in ice and snow.  They befriend some of the enchanted animals and are caught up in the battle to overcome the White Witch and return Narnia to the world it knew under the rule of the Great Lion.

This new musical adventure will capture the imagination of young and old alike.
