Walk through the wardrobe and prepare for an adventure…

When Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy stumble upon an enchanted wardrobe in an old country mansion, they discover that it’s a gateway to another world. A world where animals speak and mythical creatures roam. A magical world called Narnia.

A fantastical adventure begins but the four soon realise that something is very wrong in Narnia. The wicked White Witch has cast a spell bringing about an eternal winter. Now the children must find the courage within themselves to break the spell and reinstate Narnia’s rightful ruler, Aslan the lion, to his throne.

The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe is a timeless classic that children cherish and adults adore. This brand new production is directed by Tessa Walker who previously directed The REP’s much-loved Christmas 2013 production, A Christmas Carol (“Stunning” The Times) and promises all of the thrills and excitement you would expect from such an enduring festive epic.
