Show Information

"It's – it's a magic wardrobe. There's a wood inside it, and it's snowing, and there's a Faun and a Witch and it's called Narnia! Come and see."

This Christmas come with us as we step inside the wardrobe to meet kindly Mr Tumnus, Aslan the brave lion and the cruel and wicked White Witch!

This adaptation of CS Lewis' timeless tale will whisk you away to Narnia, a land where it always snows and adventure is just around the corner.

Featuring a company of actor-musicians, magical songs and directed by Rachel O'Riordan (Director of last year's much loved Arabian Nights), The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is perfect Christmas storytelling guaranteed to leave you spellbound!

RELAXED PERFORMANCE

Sherman Theatre offers Relaxed Performances, where children and adults with a learning disability, autism spectrum condition, Down's Syndrome or a sensory & communication disorder, can feel comfortable and at ease in a performance specially designed for their needs.

As part of the Relaxed Performances, Sherman Theatre will be offering Visual Stories, familiarisation visits, a chill out area and fully trained staff on hand throughout the visit.
