“The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” takes the beloved Narnia classic and brings it to life onstage. Join four young children from England as they travel through a magical wardrobe into the land of Narnia where they meet an assortment of magical creatures fighting the tyranny of the White Witch.
“Between The Kiss and Awake: A Tale of Sleeping Beauty” is an original play written by local playwright Emily Holmes. This twist on the classic fairy tale takes place in Sleeping Beauty’s dream after the spell has come to pass. She needs a kiss to rescue her but the true power to save her comes from herself!
Both plays are family friendly and suitable for all ages.
