MASON – Four children – Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie – must flee the perils of the Blitz in London during World War II to the safety of the countryside.

Traveling through an old wardrobe, they discover the fantastical land of Narnia, a world frozen in winter by a fearsome White Witch.

Come follow the Pevensies' adventures when Mars Hill Academy presents C.S. Lewis' classic The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. On their journey the children meet fantastical creatures, like Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, Mr. Tumnus, the witch's dwarf, Father Christmas, and a host of other wonderful and mysterious creatures. The most impressive of all is the majestic and courageous lion Aslan, who has come to save the children and the creatures from the spell of the White Witch.

"C.S. Lewis is a wonderful storyteller," said Andrew Waldy, the show's director. "With intense action and memorable characters, this allegorical story of love, faith, and courage culminates in the triumph of good over evil and is a true celebration of life."

Two Grammar School casts will perform February 1-10. The Blue Cast includes Isaac Chastain, Lauren Burns, Carson Lucas, Emily Frank, Lydia Cunningham, Kadin Hasse, Caleb Lang, Ella Woollard, Anna Kate Gage, Madelyn Willison, Daniel Pienaar, Daniel Frank, Grace Lewondowski, Logan Anderson, Sydney Gilbert, Nate Heidenreich, and Elianna Walls.
