The Magician\'s Nephew
The Magician's Nephew
By C.S. Lewis Dramatized by Aurand Harris.

Cast: 3m., 3w. (3 talking animals.) A highly theatrical dramatization of a C.S. Lewis classic by America's most-produced children's playwright. Young Digory and his friend Polly, through the use of magic rings created by Digory's uncle, set forth on a series of magical adventures through mythical kingdoms and enchanted lands. In the travels, they encounter Queen Jadis and awaken her from her enchanted sleep, unleashing the power of evil. Attempting to acquire the healing apple for Digory's sick mother, the heroic children unintentionally bring Jadis' evil into Narnia, the new world which the great lion Aslan sings into existence. In this land of talking animals, there are miraculous happenings as good battles against evil and Digory struggles to return home to cure his ailing mother with the healing apple. This is a play that encompasses realism and fantasy, interesting characters, humor and lyrical beauty, excitement and suspense. The script lends itself to imaginative staging, either simple or elaborate, providing a memorable visit to C.S. Lewis' mythical kingdom with the great lion, the evil witch, the heroic children and the talking animals. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
