April 2, 2007

MILWAUKEE – Follow the Pevensie siblings through the wardrobe April 19-22, 26 and 28 with Wisconsin Lutheran College’s production of “Narnia.” Based on “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” by C.S. Lewis and adapted by Jules Tasca, Thomas Tierney and Ted Drachman, “Narnia” is a must-see musical for the entire family.
 
While war rages in Europe, the four Pevensie siblings step through a wardrobe into the magical world of Narnia. However, even in a magic world, good and evil, and even war, still exist. Soon Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are battling alongside the Narnia photomystical creatures they have met, all the while learning the power of love, sacrifice and forgiveness. “Narnia” is directed by Deborah Solomon-Phillips, adjunct professor of theatre at Wisconsin Lutheran College.

The performances take place in the Raabe Theatre in the college’s Center for Arts and Performance. The performances are April 19-21 at 7 p.m., April 22 at 3 p.m., April 26 at 7 p.m. and April 28 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $8, $7 for seniors and $5 for students and children.
