Join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter as they wave goodbye to wartime Britain and say hello to a talking Faun, an unforgettable Lion and the coldest, cruellest White Witch. The nations favourite novel, now on the stage.

Tuesday 8th February: Georgie and Mum

Georgie (Age 6) - ★★★★★

'I loved the stage mummy the big clock really got my eye with the animals in the middle, I really liked the train mummy it was like it was dancing around, I really liked the bit when they go through the wardrobe to another world called Narnia, I loved the red squirrel up in the clock but then my favourite changed to the lion he was sooo cool, I like the music, the Ice queen wasn't nice oh and I liked the dancing turkish delights, there was also so many intruments I liked. The birds and the girls flying was pretty amazing too. Oh oh I think I liked the robin the most dancing around the stage and around the children. I just liked all of it I give it 152 stars 10 out of 10.'

Mum - ★★★★★

'What an emotional intro to the show with the soldier playing the piano it was a great way to grab our attention. The set and costumes where amazing, The way the instruments where used by the animals was fantastic, there was also some funny moments / jokes which where suitable for adults and children to understand, the variety of animal costumes was brilliant and easy for us to identify, the show was so gripping with a lovely story and toe tapping songs, I dont want to give too much away, I didn't know what to expect but this was a fantastic. A must see show for all 5 out of 5 from me.

Georgie was amazed from the moment she sat down, the beautiful mural on the ceiling caught her eye, she had lots of questions to ask about the theatre itself then she moved onto the set.

As soon as the curtain went up and she saw the soldier playing the piano that was her swaying away to the music then she was hooked. Georgie was so into the violin throughout the show she said mummy once the show is over can you take me to a music shop and buy me a violin?'
