The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

6th December 2013 - 4th January 2014

The North Wall Arts Centre


Always winter and never Christmas, can you imagine?

The snow didn’t fall over the unusually mild Christmas of 2013 but there was a sleigh, reindeer, and of course plenty of Turkish Delight in our brand new musical adaptation of CS Lewis’ Classic tale.

With a beautiful specially composed score and nine talented singers our audiences were whisked away to a magical land just through the spare ‘oom, and grown ups and kids alike just had to cheer when Father Christmas finally got in.

We were also joined again this year on stage by 12 talented Creation Drama Clubbers who sang, acted and pounced about like wolves admirably.

“If you are in Oxford and looking for an alternative to traditional pantomime, then this take on a children’s classic is recommended.” The Stage

“Stephen Luke Walker’s evocative and beautiful melodies bring fresh life to C.S. Lewis’ popular children’s classic.” Daily Info
