For Christmas 2019 we bring back Aslan with NARNIA, a musical version of C.S. Lewis' classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (the dramatic version was the HAP's very first production in 2008).
The White Witch has the talking animals, and the whole land of Narnia under a spell so that it is "always winter, but never Christmas"... until the majestic King Aslan returns. With the help of four children who stumble through the wardrobe into Narnia, Aslan teaches lessons of courage, unselfishness and
wisdom, and he will set things right again. But at what cost?
excitement of the opening song, "Aslan's on the Move," to the joy of
"Narnia (You Can't Imagine)," your spirits will soar with this story of love, faith, courage and sacrifice, and its triumph of good over evil.
Samples of the book and score are available HERE.
