The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

By CS Lewis
Adapted by Glyn Robbins
Directed by Mark Thomson

"The wardrobe is magic. There's a wood inside it, and a lamppost, and a country called Narnia where
it's snowing all the time. And I met a faun called Mr Tumnus, and we had tea together..."


CS Lewis’s wonderful tale of the magical land of Narnia has delighted children and families for over fifty years since it was first written in 1950. Recent blockbuster film The Chronicles of Narnia revived the much loved fantasy novel, with iconic characters brought to life on the big screen. Now the Lyceum brings this enchanting tale to the stage. Under the direction of artistic director Mark Thomson, this is sure to be another Lyceum Christmas delight!

Join evacuees Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter as they step through an old wardrobe into the mysterious land of Narnia, where the ruthless White Witch ensures it’s always winter but never Christmas. Alongside a host of forest friends, including Mr Tumnus the faun and Mr and Mrs Beaver, the four siblings join with the magestic lion Aslan to battle the Witch and bring happiness – and Christmas – to the land of Narnia once again.

Last year’s Lyceum Christmas production of The Wizard of Oz broke all Box Office records, and exceeded our wildest expectations. This year we’re taking you and your family on another awfully big adventure, with this production of C.S Lewis’s magical children’s’ fantasy - voted the best children’s book of all time in a poll by literary charity The Book Trust.
