The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.  

Theatre New Brunswick will take audiences on a memorable holiday adventure with its upcoming production of the C. S. Lewis classic, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Holiday productions are a long-standing tradition at TNB going all the way back to the early 1970s. Over the years the company has brought to the stage several productions of timeless favourites like A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street and It’s A Wonderful Life, occasionally stepping outside the fold to offer holiday theatre-goers something a little different like Peter Pan (1998), Pinocchio (2005) and Treasure Island (2010). But through the various turns in theme and content, TNB has always offered family friendly productions of the highest quality this time of year.

To share the story upcoming story of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, TNB welcome a ten actor cast that pairs national award winning actors of stage, film and television with four young actors from New Brunswick. Elena Hrkalovic (Susan), Sasha Mais (Lucy), Ben Rutter (Edmond), and Carter Scott (Peter) will each make their professional stage debut alongside and impressive cast of accomplished actors from across the country whose collective experience includes roles on Star Trek Discovery, Designated Survivor, Little Mosque on the Prairie, and Nikita, as well as appearances on some of Canada’s best-known stages including Stratford, Shaw Festival, Soulpepper, Vancouver Playhouse, Canadian Stage and others.
