The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe - Summer Theatre Festival

Members of the Southwestern College Summer Theatre Festival Youth Day Camp and Story Theatre Day Camp will present “THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE” on Saturday, June 19, at 10 a.m., and 1 p.m. The show will be performed in Messenger Recital Hall in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center. 

The production is appropriate for all ages and is approximately 45 minutes. Admittance is free though a $5 donation would be appreciated. 

Members of the Youth Day Camp have learned about all aspects of technical theatre and design as well as acting.  The Story Theatre participants have developed storytelling and acting skills.   This year, 27 individuals will perform on stage and assist in the action behind the scenes.  The work of the youth is supported by festival interns, Jamieson Campo, Merie Campo, Lizzy Santana, Gabe Gonzalez, Jacob Giger, Garrett Ouse, Delia Moon, and director of theatre, Allyson Moon.

A summary of the play from the Dramatic Publishing Company says this dramatization of C.S. Lewis' classic work faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan's resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowning of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver and Tumnus the Faun. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.
