In a change of direction for the holiday season, the community theater company, Bob and Ro Productions is working on a production of the much loved classic work, "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis.
This will be the largest cast and the biggest production ever for the studio theater which ‘Fox and Goose’ regulars will surely have noticed a little further along R Street.
The auditions for the casting are over and a strong cast has been assembled with a mix of adult and children actors, drawn from all over the Sacramento region. Rehearsals start in late October and there will be twelve performances over the first three weekends of December. It promises to be an exciting production that kids and adults alike will love.
The story, familiar to many from book and movie theater, is the first book in the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ series, written between 1949 and 1954. The main characters are four English schoolchildren who have been ‘evacuated’ from London to avoid the bombing raids. The story begins with a mysterious magical land (Narnia) discoverd at the back of an old wardrobe in the house they are billetted in. Once inside Narnia they meet many talking creatures and an evil witch. They also find a magical talking lion, Aslan and battle commences between the witches wickedness and the good woodland creatures.
Suitable for every age, this is a play that will make a great Holiday season treat for the whole family!
As this is a larger-than-normal production and involves many costume and scenery challenges, Bob and Ro Productions are trying to raise additional revenue to help cover the substantial expenses.
