“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” dramatized by Joseph Robinette from the story by C.S. Lewis and directed by Dawn Nickerson, opens Friday, Feb. 27, at NOVA Center for the Performing Arts. The play tells the story of four children who go through a magical wardrobe and enter into an enchanted land full of talking animals. There they must make a dangerous trek to save a royal lion from an evil witch. The production is made possible through the generosity of the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch. The cast includes both adults and children. The main characters are played by Logan Shy (as Peter), Lauren Lane (Susan), Kievan McCave (Edmund) and Seja Foster (Lucy). Supporting players include Dan Nickerson (as Aslan), Amanda McCave (White Witch), Tom Mulford (Professor Kirk), Glenda Brauneis (Mrs. MaCready), Cruz Martinez (Tumnus), Gabe Slater (Grumpskin) and Cole Whittington (Maugrim) as well as James Pelham, Holly Howe, Evan Ulrichs, Loren Hart, Miyon Durham, Shannon Sheehy, Danielle Dupree, Makay Loran, Madi Morgan, Kelsey Larson, Chloe Mayer, Emma Ulrichs, Micah Andrews, Mya Mack, Abby Beddes, Kenzy Gilsdorf and Luke Johnson. NOVA youth director Dan Nickerson said kids and adults can take some things away from the story. “Some of what makes this such a special show are its lessons in family, courage and forgiveness,” Nickerson said.
