The first and most famous story of the Chronicles of Narnia has become a musical presentation of this unique, enchanted world filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable, both good and evil, demonic and transcendent. The principal inhabitants, however, are the intelligent talking animals ruled by the majestic King Aslan, the great lion of Narnia. Though Aslan is often absent from the land (so that his very existence is doubted by some), he returns when the need for him is greatest. And entering Narnia at a moment of high adventure are some children--plucked from our world in unexpected ways to help Narnia and to learn from their Narnia odyssey lessons of courage, unselfishness and wisdom that will help them grow. Narnia wants to sing, and from the excitement of the opening song, "Aslan's on the Move," to the joy of "You Can't Imagine (How Beautiful It Was)," your spirits will soar with all those in Narnia.
Among the principals is Madison-area favorite Wendy Jones, who contributes her talents as the evil White Witch. Newcomer to OSHP, Phillip Staley, plays Aslan the rightful King of Narnia. And a host of talented young people light up the stage as all sorts of Narnian creatures, both good and evil.
