A. D. Players Children's Theater to Stage MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW, 3/18-4/6
A. D. Players will present The Magician's Nephew in its Children's Theater, previewing March 18th, opening March 19th, and running through April 6th.
"The Magician's Nephew has always been a childhood favorite," said Director Chip Simmons. "The story encourages the curious exploration of the many choices we must make in our life journey. Digory and Polly are faced with many high-stake choices as they journey from darkness to light. Their discoveries, like ours, awaken them unto the creation of life."
The Magician's Nephew is adapted from the exciting first story in The Chronicles of Narnia series. The story follows Digory and his friend Polly who, through a pair of magical rings, discover new worlds, including Narnia at the very beginning of its creation. During their travels they accidentally awaken the evil Queen Jadis who follows them into Narnia, and a battle of good against evil begins as Digory seeks a healing apple to save his sick mother.
The production team for The Magician's Nephew includes Mark A. Lewis (Set and Lighting Design), Patty Tuel Bailey (Costume Design), Trisha Wise (Properties Design), and guest designer Orlando Arriaga (Sound Design).
