New Berlin - "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," a fantastical world of winter, talking animals and the cruel reign of the White Witch, will be presented by the TAP Children's Playhouse Friday through Sunday at the New Berlin West Performing Arts Center, 18695 W. Cleveland Ave.
The story focuses on four children who discover a mysterious world beyond the coats in an old wardrobe in their uncle's mansion. This fantastic story of Narnia was a major literary success for C.S. Lewis in 1950 and launched several other series called "The Chronicles of Narnia."
"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," a tale for all ages, begins with the harmless exploration of their uncle's mansion, where Lucy first enters the Land of Narnia, with its frozen sculptures, beautiful landscape and castles. Lucy shares her discovery with her brothers and sisters as they are soon introduced to "non-human" characters.
The king of Narnia, Aslan, and his loyal followers believe Lucy and her siblings to be the prophesized royalty predicted to save the land from the evil White Witch.
Curtain will be at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Friday, and at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $2 for the 10 a.m. matinee, otherwise admission is $7 general, $5 for students and seniors and $3 for children 12 and younger.
All seats are reserved. Tickets can be purchased online with a credit card and with cash or checks through the Performing Arts Center box office.
The student-based theater group, New Berlin West Theatre Arts Program known as TAP Children's Playhouse, presents one show per year to its younger audiences. For information, call (262) 789-6406 or visitnbexcellence.org/schools/west/west_drama.cfm.
