theatre review THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, Grand Canyon University, Feb. 7

Click here to read my complete review of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe that ran at Grand Canyon University through February 16th

"C.S. Lewis' classic children's book series "The Chronicles of Narnia" has been adapted into a major motion picture series, TV shows, radio broadcasts, and both musicals and straight plays for the stage. Joseph Robinette's 1989 stage dramatization of the first book in the series, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, is being presented by the students at Grand Canyon University in a concise production with a talented cast and clean and simple, yet effective, creative elements. And, while this adaption is a condensed version of the book, the themes of the series of courage, faith and the triumph of good over evil are still very front and center in the play.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a wonderful, inspiring and imaginative tale with a slew of colorful characters, and GCU's production, though simple and short, is moving and also just as imaginative as the original novel.  The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at Grand Canyon University's Ethington Theatre runs through February 16th. The theatre is located at 3300 W. Cambelback Road in Phoenix and ticket and performance information can be found at or by calling (602) 639-8880
