The smash hit Leeds Playhouse production of C.S. Lewis’ classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, voted the nation’s favourite book in 2019, will kick off its major UK tour at Curve from Tuesday 2 to Saturday 13 November 2021.
The show, which broke box office records at Leeds Playhouse in 2017 and played to packed houses and critical acclaim at the Bridge Theatre in London in 2019, will travel across the UK & Ireland, starting here in Leicester.
Step through the wardrobe into the enchanted kingdom of Narnia. Join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter as they wave goodbye to wartime Britain and embark on the most magical of adventures in a frozen, faraway land where they meet a Faun, talking Beavers, Aslan, the noble king of Narnia, and the coldest, most evil White Witch.
This critically acclaimed production is “A theatrical miracle” (The Times).
Producer Chris Harper said:
“C.S. Lewis wrote “they open a door and enter a world” and this is what every child imagines and dreams about. This is exactly why I’m thrilled to be able to bring this incredible new version of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe on a tour of the UK in time for Christmas 2021. Following a record breaking success at the Leeds Playhouse and The Bridge Theatre in London, the Pevensie children will travel from Narnia to venues across the UK and Ireland.
2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, but we can’t wait for children and adults alike to join us on this truly magical journey through the wardrobe next year.”
Tickets for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at Curve will be on sale to Friends on Monday 30 Nov, Supporters on Tuesday 1 Dec, Members and access customers on Wednesday 2 Dec and on general sale from Friday 4 Dec, all from 12 noon.
