The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The much-loved children’s adventure tale by C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, has been adapted for the stage in a two-actor version by Le Clanché du Rand. The Lion centers on two children, Peter and his youngest sister, Lucy. The pair spin their tale of how they stumbled upon a wonderful new land while fulfilling an important prophecy. The actors are A.D. Players’ resident actor William S. Burke and guest artist Leslie Lenert. Kevin Dean, director of children’s theater, commented, “According to C.S. Lewis, the origin of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe began with the simplest of beginnings: an image of a faun carrying an umbrella, a queen on a sledge and a magnificent lion. Watch as our two actors become that faun with an umbrella, bring that queen on a sledge to terrifying life and make everyone’s favorite lion magnificent.”
