Theatre Badin will be back on stage in mid-November with “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” in Badin’s Little Theater on New London Road in Hamilton.
“This is a great show for the whole family,” said Sarah Cline, Badin’s drama director. “It’s a C.S. Lewis classic with all the magic and mystery that so many people are familiar with.”
Aslan, the great lion, struggles with the White Witch; and four children inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten land of Narnia. The White Witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan.
“This is a story of love, faith, courage and giving,” Cline said. “The story’s triumph of good over evil is a true celebration of life.”
Evening performances will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 16-17-18, with a 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinee on Nov. 19. Tickets are $7 and are available through the Badin website, Badinhs.org under Sports ticketing, or at the door.
Badin junior Logan Dent plays Aslan, with senior Samantha Keil as the White Witch. The four children who go through the wardrobe into Narnia include senior Patrick Farrell and juniors Jocelyn Brenot, Liz Carruthers and Sam Collins.
Other cast members include senior Veronica Keil; sophomores Raynah Grau and Chloe Manley; freshmen Louella Cline, Olivia Cook, Airikah Hays and Evan Land; and Queen of Peace student Vince Collins.
Those helping backstage with set, costuming and makeup include juniors Olivia Nester, Bati Newell, Carrie Ries and Quinn Tavares; sophomore Olivia Snyder; and freshman Lexi Linblad.
