The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Ankeny Christian Academy presents The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. This dramatization of C. S. Lewis’ classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully re-creates 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 the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. 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. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting play: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan’s resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowning of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, and Tumnus the Faun. This story of love, faith, courage, and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door or by calling 515-965-8114.
