Come 30 minutes early, this is a nice place to be. Have a snack at the theater or take a short walk in the neighborhood.

Quotes & Highlights

The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven fantasy novels for children written by C. S. Lewis. This classic of children’s literature is the author’s best-known work, having sold over 100 million copies in 47 languages.

Description

Based on the C.S. Lewis novel

Book by Jules Tasca

Music by Thomas Tierney, Lyrics by Ted Drachman

Directed by Jon Tracy

Music Direction by Amy Dalton

Narnia is in a state of perpetual winter when four ordinary children plunge into its world through a magic cupboard. In a land filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable — both good and evil, demonic and transcendent — the children go on an extraordinary adventure to save Narnia in the hour of its greatest need. Based on the first and most famous story of the Chronicles by C.S Lewis and recreated on stage with a soaring score, Narnia is a rare family musical of unexpected wonder and wisdom.

Spirits will soar with the music of Narnia – from the excitement of the opening song, “Aslan’s On the Move,” to the joyful “You Can’t Imagine (How Beautiful it Was).”
