MAD Productions will be holding auditions for The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe dramatized by Joseph Robinette from the story by C.S. Lewis. This new dramatization of C.S. Lewis' classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle 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. This story of love, faith, courage, and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.
Rehearsals will begin September 10th and will be determined by the director to best fit the cast and play needs, please plan for rehearsals to take place Monday-Thursday 6:30-9:00 and Saturdays 10:00am-1: 00 pm.
