The two actors who portrayed all the roles were excellent. The writer did a terrific job distilling the story into a less than hour performance. The audience was composed of extremely well behaved children who were enthralled despite the fact that there were no "special effects", and adults who also loved it. It showed the power of imagination over unnecessary effects.

Off-Broadway Family Theatre presents its production of C.S. Lewis’ well-loved tale The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe at St. Luke's Theatre.
In this inventive and highly theatrical adaptation, which has been performed all across the country, two actors play eight characters, (including animals). Through the magic of theatre, travel to Narnia where the White Witch has trapped Narnia in a perpetual state of winter with no hope of Christmas. But everything changes when four siblings venture through an old wardrobe and enter this land of talking animals, charming fauns, giants and dwarves. Standing shoulder to shoulder with Asian the Great Lion, the children battle the forces of evil and discover that Love is the deepest magic of all.
Dramatized by Le Clanche du Rand, the play features Abigail Taylor-Sansom and Dan Wilson playing children, beavers, fauns, wicked witches and mythic lions, all under the direction of Julia Beardsley O’Brien. Live percussion provided by Jim Woolf.
