C.S Lewis’ first installment of the epic Chronicles of Narnia series bounds on to the CTYP stage this holiday season. 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.
What to Expect
This production explores sophisticated themes and grand adventure. The stakes are high, sacrifices are made, and the White Witch asserts intense, deathly power. We recommend familiarizing your kids with the story in advance of your theatre adventure.
