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).”
