We are excited to announce our fall play, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This new dramatization of C. S. Lewis' classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia.

This year a record number of students auditioned for the show--35! We have elected to cast everyone who tried out and have ended up with two large ensembles: the Witch’s army and those loyal to Aslan. The followers of Aslan are working with the directors and costume designer to choose what type of animal their character will be and how this will impact and shape their role.

This is the largest cast ANC has ever had for the straight play. It's also requiring a lot more character development. The directors & cast have been using The Stanislavski Method (incorporating the "magic if", objectives, super objectives, throughlines, and subtext) to develop these characters from the inside out.

According to the script, there will be no blackouts for scene changes. ANC Dance Teacher and Choreographer Sarah Gladish has voluntarily taken a group of students who will be the wood nymphs; they will provide both the scenic changes and influence the mood of the show through choreographed movement to music during the scene changes.

This is a wonderful show that focuses on the power and resiliency of children when there are no parents to do life for them. They make mistakes; such as coming unprepared or trusting the wrong people. They also learn from them, like Lucy making her siblings bring coats or Edmund reconciling with his siblings.

Performances will be held November 30 at 8pm, December 1 at 8pm, and December 2 at 3pm and 7pm.

The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the Witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life. Perfect for families and people of all ages, the performance time will run approximately 70 minutes.
