The audience in Benjamin Hall was transported to a land of talking animals and mythical creatures during two evening performances of “The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe.”
The play, directed by drama teacher Tom Bazar and featuring members of the Upper School Drama Club, followed the Pevensie siblings as they traversed the mystical land of Narnia that one White Witch ruled for 100 years. The four children travel to Narnia through a magical wardrobe that doubles as a portal. The play, adapted from the book by C.S. Lewis, was a huge hit among parents, faculty and friends in attendance.
"The play was very successful," said drama teacher Tom Bazar. "We had a very large audience turnout and the feedback has been extremely positive. Hurricane Irma put a dent in our process but it actually worked out for the best giving us an extra two weeks. The actors and all students involved in the production care very much about the quality of their work and I think it shows in the end product. Overall, it was a delightful time."
