Amzing show! My five year old simply loved it. I feared that 2 hrs and 15 min might be too long, but he seemed interested all the way through the end!

Took our six year old son who is a big Narnia fan. We all enjoyed it--maybe a bit too much singing (but hey I'm not a huge musical fan!). But, the sets were very creative, the kids in the cast were terrific. So fun to see my own kiddo and so...continued

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.


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).”
