lionThe Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe Live!
Saturday October 10th at 11am
Saint Luke's Theater 
308 W. 46th Street (between 8th and 9th Ave) 

Cost:  $30 per person (child or adult)

The White Witch has trapped Narnia in a perpetual state of winter with no hope of Christmas. But all that changes when four siblings venture through an old wardrobe and enter this land of talking animals, charming fauns, giants and dwarves. Standing shoulder to shoulder with Aslan the Great Lion, the children courageously battle the forces of evil and discover that Love is the deepest magic of all.

In this inventive and highly theatrical adaptation of C.S. Lewis' classic, two actors give a tour-de-force performance that's sure to delight children and adults alike.

Children 3 and younger are not permitted in the theater.
