The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe at Pacific Theatre

Comments 106 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s my favourite time of year — theatre season — and starting December 5th Pacific Theatre will be whisking audiences away to Narnia in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

A dream so beautiful you remember it all your life, always wishing you could get back into that dream again. Peter and Lucy Pevensie may be adults now, but a regular life in London cannot compare to their adventures in the land of Narnia.

When they revisit the wardrobe where the story began, it doesn’t take long for them to get caught up in their reminiscence and relive their journey through the land where it is always winter and never Christmas. The land where Peter and Lucy, joined by their siblings, were not mere children, but Sons of Adam and Eve, warriors for the great lion Aslan, defeaters of the White Witch, and kings and queens. The land no one can forget once they have lived in it, from four fictional children to the millions who have been captivated by reading their story.

Adapted from the novel by CS Lewis, this touring production directed by Kerri Norris opens December 5, 2012 at the Pacific Theatre (1440 West 12th) and will run until December 15, 2012. It will move to the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam from December 18 to December 22, 2012.

Tickets can be booked now through the box office online or over the phone at (604) 731-5518 starting at $31.35 for adults, $22.39 for seniors and students, and $15.67 for children.
