The authors of this popular musical, based on the C.S. Lewis classic story, have written a new shorter version that retains most of the spirited and soaring songs of the original. This Narnia is short enough to be performed in one act, and with doubling, by a minimum of eight actors -- so it is suitable for touring.
All the excitement and adventure of the original full-length version are here, led by a delightful cast of characters: the majestic lion, the evil White Witch, the four English schoolchildren who journey through an old wardrobe into the magical land of Narnia, a scary wolf and a charming beaver couple. The children become caught up in an epic battle between good and evil, where they are the key players.
Joining Aslan the great lion in a war against the white witch, they learn valuable lessons in heroism as they fight off wolves and cruelies, eventually fulfilling an ancient prophesy.
