That master of imaginative enchantment, C.S. Lewis, has created a unique world and he invites children to walk into it and enjoy both surprise and adventure. An old house in rural England becomes the home base for four children who wander into an incredible country through an old wardrobe and help the country return to summer. In the incredible Narnia, they make friends with the frightened forest people who have almost given up hope for the return of good King Aslan, their true ruler. When Aslan was there, it was always summer. There is a great battle to see whether this magical country will remain under a wintry spell or will, once again, know freedom and summer under good King Aslan. A charming play about courage and the love of freedom.

Customer Reviews

"This is a wonderful one act with potential for lots of participation. Our cast ranged in age from 7 - 99. "
Review by Charlotte Petti, Woodcliff United Church, Calgary, Alberta
"This is a great show for younger ages. I used the script for 4th through 12th. The short length made for easy rehearsals where time could be spent on character development. Great show to work with puppetry and larger than life animal costumes without much risk."
Review by Brett Russell, Chesaning Union Schools, Chesaning, Mich.
"Our script was a wonderful adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. We had 50+ students from grades K-5 involved. The suggestions for staging, costumes, etc. were very helpful. We loved the show and had so much fun doing it."
Review by Janie Calvert, Dapple Gray Elementary School, Rolling Hills Estate, Calif.
"The script is short and concise but doesn't leave out any of the memorable characters or scenes we all know and love. Perfect for young actors."
Review by Kristen Phillips, McDonald Middle School, Mesquite, Texas

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"I found keeping the staging simple and collecting Christmas trees for the set was all it took for Narnia to come to life. Highly recommend."
Tip by Hannah Agee, Emmanuel Christian Academy, Springfield, Ohio
"From our experience, simplicity worked well. The story speaks for itself without making the set too complicated."
Tip by Charlotte Petti, Woodcliff United Church, Calgary, Alberta
"We used animal latex masks for the statues; we used a half face mask for Aslan and made the mane out of different shades of material."
Tip by Amy Penny-Lowe, Frank Seale Middle School, Midlothian, Texas
