19 Feb The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
Congratulations to the Cast and Crew!
The students of the St. Michael’s Theatre Ensemble had three amazing performances of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”, this weekend at St. Michael’s. Congratulations to the student cast and crew for their hard work, dedication, and stellar performance with this collaborative program!
Thanks especially to our production team: Christy Johnston, Jessica Reeg, and Ellyn Eaves-Hileman. Directors brought their unique talents to bear and produced a show that was thoughtfully acted, and pleasingly choreographed. The set and costume designs were outstanding, and allowed viewers to experience what it might feel like to be in Narnia!
“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is based on C.S. Lewis’ first book of The Chronicles of Narnia, in an adaptation by Adrian Mitchell. While staying in a remote country manor to escape the London Blitz, the four Pevenzie children discover a magic wardrobe that allows them to pass into Narnia, a world inhabited by talking animals and ruled by the White Witch. Since coming into power, the Witch has held Narnia in an eternal winter, never permitting Christmas or spring, and turning her enemies to stone with a wave of her wand. All of Narnia has been waiting for the return of Aslan, the Lion and Lord of Narnia, to overcome the Witch and reawaken the land. The children join together with Aslan, as they fight to outwit the Witch and restore peace to Narnia, learning the power of love and loyalty along the way.
