Award winning playwright Joseph Robinette faithfully recreates the wonderful world of C.S. Lewis’ Narnia in Bob & Ro Production’s performance of “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe,” a play perfect for the entire family.

A cast of nymphs, unicorns, centaurs, talking beavers and other magical creatures guide four children through a troubled land and an life and death struggle for control of Narnia. This is perhaps the biggest production to appear on The Studio Theatre stage.

Director Michael Peters guides this cast of creatures, including local performers Garrick Sigl, Stephanie Hardwick, Riley Spieler and Makinzi Hanie ,who play four children who’ve been sent to the country to avoid the dangerous shelling of the war. While exploring the strange mansion that is their new home they enter a wardrobe and pass into the magical world of Narnia — a once thriving and beautiful land, now in the grips of an evil queen who has brought cold, winter and distrust to the magical creatures who live there. The children join forces with the rightful King Aslan to bring hope and warmth back to this wonderful place.

Remember, there are many paths that lead to Narnia.

Bob and Ro Productions presents “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe” on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m., Dec. 2-18. Tickets are $20 general admission, $18 seniors, $15 students, $10 children, and can be arranged by calling the box office at (877) 532-7171 between noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
