I still remember when my parents first read The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe to me as a child. The story, full of excitement, talking animals, and set in a magical wintry world, is just as enchanting to me now as it was then. I, in turn, read the same book to my own children just a few years ago. They absolutely loved it and it has become a cherished family book with so many memories for all of us. Now, you can take your family to experience the magic in a whole new way: live on stage with the upcoming performances of Narnia, The Musical by National Youth Theater.
Narnia, The Musical is a dramatization of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first and most famous of acclaimed British author C.S. Lewis’s world-renowned series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Come enter the magical land of Narnia, the land behind the wardrobe door where animals talk, trees can walk, a white witch covers the landscape with snow and bewitches you with Turkish Delight, and where a mighty lion rescues you whenever you get into trouble. It is a classic story of good triumphing over evil that the whole family is sure to enjoy.
Children and adults alike have been enchanted by the magical world of Narnia and the mysterious wardrobe for generations. Bring the entire family, grandparents included, to experience this incredible live performance! Together you can kick off your holiday season and enjoy the magic of the unique, enchanted world of Narnia. It is sure to be filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable, both good and evil, dark and transcendent. Even if you’ve never read the original book, you’ll still love and appreciate this timeless story.
Narnia, a book by Jules Tosca, music by Thomas Tierney, and lyrics by Ted Drachman, tells the story of four schoolchildren who unexpectedly plunge through a magical wardrobe into a glistening forest kingdom of perpetual winter… a fairy tale with magic swords, potions, and exotic forest creatures that range from a benign pair of beavers to the famished hissing Cruelies who serve the wicked queen. You’ll love this delightful and exciting performance!
The Pevensie children discover that they have a destiny to stand with Aslan the Lion to free Narnia from the deadlock hold of evil winter that the White Witch has cast upon the land. However, many obstacles of treachery, betrayal, and evil magic threaten to undo them along the way.
Starring a cast of young actors ages 8-19, this incredible cast has crafted a musical theatre experience that is a gift to our arts community in the greater Houston area. Entertainment that the entire family will enjoy!
Narnia opens on November 18 at Lynn Lucas Middle School Performing Arts Center at 1304 N. Campbell Street in Willis. There are five performances to choose from that run through November 20. Purchase your tickets online today here. Make sure to reserve seats for the whole family- maybe even the extended family! This is sure to be an enchanting start to your holiday season.
