South Forsyth Middle School play brings Narnia to life

Drama group performs ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — South Forsyth Middle School’s theater group is inviting family and friends to its production of the play, “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe,” by Joseph Robinette.

This new dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ fictional novels is set in the land of Narnia, and students of South Forsyth Middle will recreate on stage the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, and his struggle with the White Witch.

The show opens Nov. 13 and runs through Nov. 16 at the Lambert High School performing arts center, 805 Nichols Road in Suwanee.

The story explores the adventures of four children who wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting land of Narnia and engage in the fight of good over evil.

Other characters include Father Christmas, Tumnus the Faun, dancing white stags and unicorns.

Bob Upton, theater director, said this is a great cast and crew that has already proved they can put on an outstanding show.

“They recently traveled to Madison, Ga., to compete in the Elaine Kotler One-Act Play Contest,” Upton said. “The cast and crew had a great day and brought back several awards.”

Upton said the group received awards for actors Caitlyn Capre and Frank Powell, as well as best crew ensemble, best scenery and costumes.

From Wednesday, Nov. 13 through Friday, Nov. 15, the shows start at 8 p.m. A Saturday, Nov. 16 matinee show starts at 1 p.m.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
