The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
By CS Lewis
Dramatised by Theresa Heskins
Directed by Andrew Panton
“It's a magic wardrobe. There's a wood inside it, and it's snowing, and there's a faun and a witch and it's called Narnia. Come and see."
This Christmas, The Lyceum is delighted to present C.S. Lewis’ classic tale The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Step with us through a dusty wardrobe and into a snowy landscape filled with thrilling adventure. Meet the majestic Aslan, the loveable Mr Tumnus and his fantastical friends and join their quest to free Narnia from the spell of the White Witch.
A festive treat of music and song from the team that brought you The Lyceum’s magical festive shows The BFG and A Christmas Carol.
Suitable for all ages.
