MARINETTE — The Office of Continuing Education and Community Engagement is presenting “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” based on the story by C.S. Lewis.

This new dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, (Marin Fernandez), the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, (Kate Schwaba), and the adventures of four children (Edmund played by Keaton Bartz, Peter played by Wyatt Evanchek, Susan, played by Hannah Fields, and Lucy played by Maia Pecard) who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia.

The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this dramatization; the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan’s resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowing of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also there: The unicorn, played by Lauren Halfmann, the centaur played by Kaylee Behrendt, and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, played by Charlie Rowell; Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, played by Logan Ayers and Emily Halfmann; and Tumnus the Faun played by Henry Zuehls.

This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life. Other members cast in the show are Alaina Archambault as the first Newcomber, Gabe Behrendt as the first Animal, Eddie DeWitt as second Newcomber, Maggie Fernandez as Fenris Ulf, Eliot Fields as fourth Animal, Bianca Furton as fifth Animal, Dylan Grandaw as second Animal, Xavier Kartheiser as third Animal, Addison Lacy as the White Stag, Laurana Mines as the sixth Animal, Trent VandeWalle as the Elf, and Connor Whisler as the Dwarf. Additionally, members of the Ensemble are Penny Bardowski, Lily Clark, Izzie Harris, Jacob Johnson, Aviendha Kobus, Emma Kobus, Megan Krouth, Chet Lacy, Leah Mines, Andie Rassmussen and Daniel Zuehls.
