The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

SMASH presented The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C S Lewis, dramatized by Adrian Mitchell with music by Shaun Davey on 29th March-1st April 2017 in theatre space in Solihull Methodist Church, Blossomfield Road, B91 1LG, using special theatre staging, lighting and sound.
This musical version was commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and recounts C S Lewis’s classic tale of four children, evacuated from London during the Blitz. While exploring the Professor’s house, Lucy stumbles across a wardrobe, gateway to another world. The land of Narnia is under the spell of the wicked White Witch making it always winter but never Christmas. But Aslan, the great Lion, is on the move to save Narnia from the power of the White Witch. The four children find themselves caught up in a deadly struggle between the powers of good and evil.

Children of Eden

Children of Eden

Children of Eden was our latest production on 16-19th March 2016.

Based on the characters and events from Genesis, this is a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith. From the Creation to the Great Flood, beauty and wonder run side by side with loss and heartache – as all come to understand what it means to be connected as family. This musically masterful West End gem is from the composer of Godspell and Wicked and the director of Les Miserables.

The musical was performed in theatre space in Solihull Methodist Church – SMASH returning to our home at Solihull Methodist Church after many happy years at the Dovehouse Theatre to make full use of the facilities in the recently refurbished church for our production. Photographs of the production will be posted soon
