'The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe' Nov. 2

One of the nation's most beloved children's theater stage shows is coming to the area November 2, with tickets available online now for "The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe."

Showtime is 1 p.m. that Sunday at the Lakes Art Center Lauridsen Theatre, Okoboji.

TheatreworksUSA's enchanting musical is based on C.S. Lewis' adventure story about four children of war-torn England, who accidentally enter the land of Narnia by climbing through a magic wardrobe. This strang and wondrous place is ruled by the cold-hearted White Witch, who makes the winter last year round. Although they seem unlikely saviors, the children fulfill an ancient prophesy by defeating the witch, thus restoring sunshine and peace to the spell-bound Narnia and returning the great Lion King Aslan to his throne.

The Los Angeles Times says, "It conveys the inspirational magic that has captivated young readers for decades."
