Excerpts from the review, by Jack McGee
On Wednesday night I was fortunate to attend the opening night of the Lieder's production of 'The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'. The play begins with the four English children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy being taken to the house of a professor so that they can be kept safe from the German raids on London during The Blitz. The children begin to explore the large house and one by one find themselves transported to the world of Narnia when they each enter a magical wardrobe.
Lucy is the first to enter this world, meeting Mr Tumnus the faun. Mae O'Flynn as Lucy and Blake Selmes as Mr Tumnus share some highly engaging scenes together. O'Flynn more than holds her own with Selmes (a Lieder veteran). Selmes as Mr Tumnus is perfectly cast and is the linchpin in pulling the audience into the darkness and wonder of this enchanting universe.
Once we are fully enveloped in this world, its characters are brought to life in many creative and versatile ways. Edmund (Joe Stewart-Richardson) interacts with the White Witch (Erin Williams) and her creepy servant Grumpskin (wonderfully brought to life by Matilda Deng), and through his performance shows the folly and resilience of childhood as he tussles with the notion of doing the right thing. While Lucy, Peter (Gabe Zecevic), and Susan (Bella Remington) meet Aslan the lion (Alfie Walker) and develop great strength and sense of purpose as they prepare to make things right in the world of Narnia again.
The director, Chrisjohn Hancock, has created a wonderful piece of theatre that the whole family can enjoy. It is further enhanced by the musical elements of the piece, with a number of songs weaved throughout the play.
I encourage you to go along to see this marvelous and magical piece of theatre, and to bring the whole family. You will not be disappointed."
