About the Play:

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a full-length drama adapted for the stage by Joseph Robinette, from the beloved book by C.S. Lewis. Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy discover an old wardrobe that leads to an enchanted land, Narnia, full of mythical creatures, talking animals, quests and secrets. In one of the greatest battles between Good and Evil in children's literature, the fate of the four children unfolds in a grand, otherworldly adventure.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the first and best-known instalment of the epic C.S Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia series. This dramatization, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan's resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowing of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver and Tumnus the Faun. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is easily staged and the play may be presented without intermission or in two short acts if desired.
