Educational performances of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

TCT will present educational day performances of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, dramatized by Joseph Robinette from the story by C.S. Lewis, on Monday, December 3rd at 9 a.m. 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Due to time restrictions the cast will present excerpts from the full length show.

This new dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ 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. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.
