If you’ve done The Nutcracker umpteen times, or know the words to “A Christmas Carol” by heart, you might be looking for a new Christmas experience for your family to enjoy.
Steps of Faith Performing Arts Center has produced the second annual performance of “Narnia”, an original contemporary ballet with some of this holiday’s most loved characters. Join Lucy, Peter, Edmund, and Susan as they journey through the wardrobe and into the adventurous land of Narnia.
Based on C.S. Lewis’s great children’s book series, this ballet interpretation is performed in pantomime, and features dancers and performers ages 4 through over-40. Under the spell of the evil White Witch and her army of enchanted creatures, the Pevensie children must help the lion Aslan, lord of Narnia, return to the land, and end a long, joyless winter.
Familiar characters like the White Witch, Mr. Tumnus, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, and the wolf Fenris Ulf, all have starring roles, plus there are ensemble pieces featuring the enchanted trees, Turkish Delight, the woodland creatures, and the Witch’s wolf pack. Professional dancer Marc Wayne guest stars as Aslan the Lion, and Father Christmas himself makes a cameo appearance in the show – he will also be taking photos with the children in the lobby thanks to Olive Photography.
Don’t wait before the show is sold out (it did last year!) – information about remaining tickets can be found by calling 256.325.STEP (7837).
