Studio Tenn is bringing Nashville families through the wardrobe for C.S. Lewis’ classic, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
The production happens Dec. 1 – Dec. 23 at the Jamison Theater in the Factory at Franklin. It’s a magical story appropriate for all ages during the holiday season. Attendees will experience a land where animals talk, elves walk and the White Witch rules. This is a can’t miss event.
If you’re not familiar with the story, it’s about four kids who pass through an enchanted wardrobe and enter the winter wonderland of the White Witch. It’s a family favorite and one of the 100 greatest novels of all time. The play is one that your entire family will love.
“This is a play for both children and adults,” Studio Tenn’s artistic director, Matt Logan, explains. “The Pevensie children are the lens through which Narnia is revealed to the entire audience. I think when you combine the classic nature of the novel with the design and interpretation that we do here at Studio Tenn, we have a perfect match for the holiday season.”
If you want to get more up close and personal with the production, they’re also offering backstage tours before the weekend matinee shows. It’s $15 and includes the tour, a meet and greet with the puppetry and photo ops with the wardrobe.
They’re also asking that attendees for the Dec. 1 – Dec. 10 shows bring new coats for children. The coat drive is for kids sizes 6 months to 12 youth. It will benefit the Williamson County’s chapter of Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children. The coats will then be given to local children in need, and a final tally of donated coats will be announced at A Studio Tenn Christmas on Dec. 13.
