As the Blitz rages in London, four young children are evacuated to a mysterious country house. There they discover an enchanted wardrobe that leads them into an adventure more exciting than they could ever have imagined. Stepping through the wardrobe door, they are transported into the frozen world of Narnia. Can the children help the great lion Aslan defeat the evil White Witch and break the spell that has held the land locked in Winter for a hundred years? Joining the professionals on stage is a talented team of 25 local children, who beat off stiff competition from hundreds of hopefuls to win places in the New Vicâs biggest show of the year. The young talents will take on roles from Aslanâs army to Father Christmasâs reindeers, all in the space of one performance.Performers Michael Hugo (Mr Tumnus), Antony Eden (Peter), Stephen Finegold (Maugrim), Richard Kidd (Mr Beaver), Lorna Laidlaw (Mrs Beaver), Jack Blumenau (Edmund), Clara Darcy (Susan), Pam Jolley (Lucy), Katie Howell, Megan Hall (White Witch), Nicholas Cass-Beggs (Alsan), Michael Burgen.
