The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Presented by The Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre

Celebrating 25 years on the Main Stage and following on from last year’s successful run of Bugsy Malone, the Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre returns with an enchanting production of the timeless classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

When Lucy stumbles through the professor’s wardrobe into another world, it is the beginning of a wonderful journey of bravery. Evacuees in the Second World War, Lucy, Susan, Edward and Peter discover the far away land of Narnia, frozen in eternal winter, waiting to be set free from the cruel power of the White Witch. They join Narnia’s magical creatures in the epic battle between good and evil and when almost all hope is lost, the Great Lion, Aslan returns.

C.S Lewis’ beautiful tale has captured the hearts of children and adults for generations. The Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre breathe life into Adrian Mitchell’s inspiring dramatization with atmospheric music by Shaun Davey.

Join us on the unforgettable journey into the land beyond the wardrobe!
