Family Friday:Narnia in Berkeley!

One of my childhood favorites

I do enjoy the parental opportunity to relive parts of my childhood by experiencing them again with my child... The Chronicles of Narnia's The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is one of those "things". I've been wanting to share this story with my little one, but have hesitated... I know there is material in the story that I don't want to just toss her way without some context to understand the way some fairy tales happen... *BUT* given the opportunity to see this story come to life in a local theater in a show for children is just the right setting to share this story... I know there will be some "scary" parts that are filled with anxious moments, I also know those lead to nuggets of goodness like bravery and generosity of spirit... Do you remember all of these little pieces?

My very favorite characters are of course, Lucy the Valiant and Dear Aslan... I've always been drawn to those beautiful lions...

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first and most famous story of the Chronicles of Narnia, is brought to the stage in an unique musical with all the fantasy and enchantment of a world filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable – both good and evil, demonic and transcendent. Ordinary children learn extraordinary lessons in courage unselfishness and wisdom.

Here is what the Berkeley Playhouse has to say:

ABOUT THE PLAY: Based on the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis, Narnia is a musical recreation of an enchanted world filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable, both good and evil, demonic and transcendent.  Narnia has been held in a state of perpetual winter for over a hundred years by the evil White Witch.  The majestic King Aslan, a talking Lion, struggles to take back possession of the land but is so often absent that his very existence is doubted by some.  Entering Narnia at a moment of its greatest need are the four Pevensie children who discover that entering a wardrobe in the home of Professor Digory Kirke will lead to this magical land.  The children join the quest to save Narnia from the White Witch and over the course of their journey filled with chases, duels and narrow escapes they learn valuable lessons in courage, generosity and wisdom.  Narnia features a soaring, inspirational musical score with music by Thomas Tierney and lyrics by Ted Drachman.  Narnia runs two hours with an intermission.  Enjoyed by children and adults.
