West Yorkshire Playhouse is extending the run of festive spectacular The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe for a further week. Opening at end of November, this brand new adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ classic story will now run until Saturday 27 January.
This major new production will see West Yorkshire Playhouse’s 750 seater Quarry stage transformed into a 1000 seater theatre in the round, bringing director Sally Cookson and designer Rae Smith’s incredible vision to life.
Telling of four war time evacuees sent to live with an eccentric Professor in the country, an innocent game of hide and seek leads the children through a magical wardrobe marking the start of a life-changing adventure. Performed by a multi-talented cast including ITV’s My Parents Are Aliens actor Carla Mendonça as the White Witch, this visually spectacular production showcases stunning puppetry and aerial performance in this new adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ treasured classic.
The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe is a West Yorkshire Playhouse, Elliott & Harper Productions and Catherine Schreiber co-production.
