Woodbury walks through the wardrobe

The Woodbury Community Theater's production of Narnia: The Musical told the story of the C.S. Lewis' classic children's book, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."2 / 2

Woodbury walked through the wardrobe on July 8-11 for the Woodbury Community Theater's production of "Narnia: The Musical" at New Life Church.

"Narnia" relates the beloved classic "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" through the addition of music.

"Narnia" tells the story of the Pevensies -- Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy -- who find a magical wardrobe that transports them to the magical world of Narnia. A wooded winter wonderland world full of mythical friends and foes. Narnia is being held captive by the white witch, Jadis, with a cold fist of cruelty and tyranny.

The Pevensies find themselves in the middle of a battle of good versus evil with the rightful king of Narnia, the great lion Aslan, fighting to restore Narnia to its former peace and beauty.

The hardworking cast and crew of Narnia transformed New Life Church into Narnia with the help of hand-made sets and costumes.

The aisles were even used as part of the stage, so the nearly sold out audience felt like they were part of the magical world.
