OHS Thespians Present "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" Nov 13-14

The Orange High School Thespians present "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" TONIGHT and TOMORROW NIGHT, November 13 and 14, at 7 p.m. on the Pepper Pike Learning Center Stage. Pre-sale tickets are available for $5 through November 13, 2015 at Orange High School. Tickets will be $10 at the door.

The four Pevensie children—Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter—have been evacuated from London during the Nazi bombing of that city in World War II. They end up living with an old professor on a rambling country estate far from the city and the war. But the professor's housekeeper, Mrs. Macready, is the original wet blanket, so the children must find ways to keep themselves amused without falling afoul of her stern gaze.

C.S. Lewis' classic children's tale now makes its way to the stage with OHS Thespian Fall Play. When Lucy climbs into a huge wardrobe while playing hide and seek, the furs give way to firs, and she finds herself in a snow-covered land called Narnia. Soon all the Pevensie children enter this magical world where it is always winter but never Christmas.

The White Witch responsible for 100 years of cold knows full well that an ancient prophecy says two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve will come to challenge her curse. So she immediately sets out to stop the children. She's unwittingly helped by Edmund, who through his own selfishness and foolish pride quickly falls under her spell.

Magic Spells. Chases. Fights. Battles. Talking Animals. Lessons Learned. A lion named Aslan. And the love that binds four siblings together. These are just a few of the reasons the land of Narnia is so loved by so many!
