Travel back to learn the beginnings of the land of Narnia
OUTLINE Theatre Group presents a magical adaptation of the novel by beloved children's author, CS Lewis, which harks back to the beginnings of Narnia.
The Magician's Nephew tells the story of Digory and his poorly mother who are staying with relations in Victorian London while his father works abroad in India.
Digory's uncle, Andrew, thinks of himself as a great magician, although his sister, Aunt Leticia, doesn't share the same view. Which of them is right? And what happens when magic spells don't go according to plan?
The show explains all, including how wickedness first came to Narnia and why Aslan is the rightful ruler of the land.
Please note the show includes strobe lighting effects.
