Auditions set Dec. 17, 18 for 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'

The next Pequot Lakes Community Theater production will be “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”

The show will be the Joseph Robinette dramatization of the C.S. Lewis classic. Set in the land of Narnia, this play faithfully re-creates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggles with the White Witch and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia.

The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan’s resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowning of the four new rulers of Narnia and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur and the other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver and Tumnus the Faun.

This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.

Kate Davis, director for the show, and Ben Gordon, assistant director, invite interested children and adults to audition either Monday, Dec. 17, or Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 6:30 p.m. in the Pequot Lakes High School auditorium.

Prepare a short poem or monologue for the audition and bring the dates of any known conflicts for January through March. Rehearsals will be mostly Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings starting in early January.

Six performances are scheduled for March 15-17 and March 22-24. Those cast must be at the performances.
