According to Dramatic Publishing, this new dramatization of C.S. Lewis’s classic, 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.
“It’s a wonderful show that our students have worked very hard on,” said Mathias. “I hope the community comes out to experience the magic of Narnia with us.”
