Outdoor Children's Theater: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

When: Wed August 01 - Sat August 04
Where: Peggy Boyle Whitworth Amphitheater at Brucemore


This summer, Brucemore, in partnership with Playtime Poppy, presents an imaginative journey into C.S. Lewis' world of Narnia in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. While exploring a stately home, four curious children wander into an old wardrobe to discover Narnia. There they make friends with the frightened forest people who have nearly lost all hope for the return of King Aslan, their true ruler. A great battle will determine whether Narnia will remain under the wintry spell of The White Witch or return to summer under good King Aslan. The Pevensie children and the forest people may need your help in their quest for freedom. You won't want to miss this epic story!
