C.S. LEWIS’S THE MAGICIAN’S NEPHEW TO OPEN THE 2018 SHAW FESTIVAL

The first production of the Shaw Festival’s 2018 season is revealed

Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON  — Commissioned by the Shaw Festival, Michael O’Brien’s adaptation of C.S Lewis’s The Magician’s Nephew opens the 2018 season on the Festival Theatre stage. No stranger to Narnia, Artistic Director Tim Carroll helms the first installment of this treasured fantasy series.
 
“I loved directing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at the Stratford Festival last year,” says Tim Carroll. “And with The Magician’s Nephew I get to take audiences back to the beginning of this much-loved tale. It’s the kind of magic that will bring out the kid in everyone.”
 
Taking place 1000 years before The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Magician’s Nephew follows the adventures of Digory Kirke and Polly Plummer who find themselves in the Wood Between the Worlds. Audiences will be enchanted as they watch Aslan create Narnia, learn what the famous wardrobe was made of and discover why there’s a lamp post in the middle of the forest.
 
The rest of the Shaw Festival 2018 season will be announced later this year along with box office information.
