The multiple award-winning Breckenridge Backstage Children’s Theatre presents an adaptation of the classic C.S. Lewis story of fealty, friendship and faith, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” written for the stage by le Clanche du Rand.

In this inventive and highly theatrical version of the famous C.S. Lewis tale, Peter and Lucy take the audience on an exciting journey through the wardrobe and back to Narnia where the White Witch has cast a spell to make it always winter and never Christmas. There they meet Mr. Tumnus the faun, and, with the help of other Narnia creatures, they go in search of Aslan the Lion who will guide them in a great battle to defeat the White Witch and return summer to Narnia. The show is perfect for ages 5 and up.

Lighting design is by Sean Mallary (“Chicago”). Costume design by Nina Jannetti. Stage management by Jennifer Schmitz (“Chicago”). Willard created the sound design.
