UE 5 Children's Theatre: NARNIA The Musical
-
The Taft Theatre - 317 E. 5th Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202

CHCA Field Trips are designed to connect students with our curriculum.

What: UE 5 Children's Theatre: NARNIA The Musical

 Attending this performance provides an enriching experience for our UE students.  In UE 4, students read the first in The Chronicles of Narnia series – The Magician’s Nephew – and we continue in UE 5 with reading the second in the series – The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
 


Based on C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

Narnia The Musical tells of four English schoolchildren – brothers and sisters – sent away from London during World War II to stay in the manor house of their uncle – who stumble upon (and through) a wardrobe into the magical kingdom of Narnia, held in the power of the White Witch, whose evil spell has frozen the land, so that it is “always winter – and never Christmas.”

In this spellbound landscape, filled with creatures of myth and fable, the children face temptation and fear, but learn deep lessons of courage, unselfishness, and wisdom that help them grow in spirit and prepare them for life in our world.

Narnia The Musical wants to sing, and from the excitement of the opening number “Doors and Windows”, to the poetry of “Narnia (You Can’t Imagine),” to the stirring “To Make the World Right Again,” your spirits will soar with all those in this enchanted land.



What to Wear:  CHCA uniform (no spirit wear)

Cost: $15
