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 in theatre space in Solihull Methodist Church, Blossomfield Road, B91 1LG, using special theatre staging, lighting and sound.

Photographs from the production will be posted here shortly.

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.

“This classic has all the right elements not only to entertain but to inspire adults to reread and a new generation to discover Lewis” – The Stage
