Arts Collective & HoCoPoLitSo Present THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA
The beloved books of acclaimed author C.S. Lewis will be brought to life in "The Chronicles of Narnia," from December 6-9, 2018, in Howard Community College's Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center. This production by Howard Community College's (HCC) Arts Collective and the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society (HoCoPoLitSo) is based on the first two books in the Narnia series, "The Magician's Nephew" and "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe."
Audiences are invited to travel to Narnia to meet favorite characters and experience a lush paradise and wintry wonderland in these classic tales. Both one-act plays, performed back-to-back, will be brought to life through uniquely creative storytelling, music, and movement performed by HCC students, alumni, faculty and guest artists.
Performances will take place Thursday, December 6 and Friday, December 7 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, December 8 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, December 9 at 2 p.m. in the Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center's Studio Theatre, located at Howard Community College, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, Maryland 21044.
