Join The Man In The Moon theatre company and Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy as they step through the wardrobe into the mysterious land of Narnia, with a cast of over 80 young people aged six to 16 from as far afield as Walton-on-Thames and Liphook.

Director Paul Rogers-Branch said: “It’s such an exciting story and the cast are having a great time bringing the animal and human characters to life. They’re really relishing the opportunity of telling the story and we are creating some really exciting battle scenes, with physical theatre to help us along. The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe promises to be an exciting adventure for everyone

“Watch Aslan and the Pevensie children as they begin their epic battle against the evil White Witch in this dazzling production, told with vivid storytelling, projections, music, exciting battles and loveable animals. It’s the ideal Easter treat for the whole family.”

The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe follows sold out performances of the whimsical Doctor Dolittle last Christmas. The youngsters have been rehearsing since January.
