The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Synopsis:

Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are spending their school  holidays in the country. However, when a game of hide and seek reveals an antique wardrobe to be a portal into the magical world of Narnia, the children find that they are linked to an ancient prophesy and they may be the only hope to free Narnia from the reign of the evil White Witch.

During their adventures they encounter Aslan the mighty lion, Tumnus the fawn, Mr and Mrs Beaver and many other mythical creatures that help them defeat the White Witch and take their places as the rightful Kings and Queens of Narnia.

Child Play is a unique theatre training program created by BJ Anyos, the Artistic Director of Child Players ACT. The program has been running for eight years and provides 40 children aged between 10-16 the opportunity to learn all aspects of theatre, both on-stage and back-stage. Participants are usually formed into two casts with one cast performing on-stage while the other cast are undertaking all the back-stage roles. This year there are three casts with everyone having a major and minor role on stage and a back-stage job. The back-stage jobs include stage management, lighting and sound, props, make-up, set moving etc. Cast members also provide live sound effects.
