Kensington Gardens became the unlikely home of one of the most talked-about shows in London back in 2009 as it welcomed a unique production of “Peter Pan” to a makeshift venue. It deservedly received widespread acclaim and now, three years later, the magic returns to the capital in time to host “The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe”, whereby The threesixty Theatre will bring the world of Narnia to life.
Just as Peter Pan’s Neverland was brought in front of audiences with the state of the art stage show, which included a 360 degree video set, “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” gets the same treatment, with puppetry and stand-out performances as well. It ensures that those picking up theatre tickets will be in for a memorable spectacle.
“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” tells the story of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, who travel to the world of Narnia in 1940 and whilst there they must work alongside Aslan to defeat the forces of the Snow Queen. The story was originally told in a 1950s novel and has been adapted on numerous occasions, including a BBC version and a 2005 movie, whilst also spawning follow-us that form the “Chronicles of Narnia” series. Other books in the series include “Prince Caspian”, “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” and more.
The director behind the production is Rupert Goold, well known for bringing some well known plays to the West End over the years, in addition to other London theatre shows, and this includes the well known “ENRON”, which appeared at the Miverva Theatre in Chichester, the Royal Court Theatre and the Noel Coward Theatre. His other credits include “Earthquakes in London” at the Cottesloe National Theatre in 2010, “King Lear” at The Young Vic in 2008 and numerous shows for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Audiences will witness Narnia like they have never seen it before this summer thanks to the Threesixty Theatre production, ensuring that audiences not only witness a show to remember but will also witness the work of a talented director.
“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is at the Threesixty Theatre in Kensington Gardens from Tuesday 8th May 2012 until Sunday 9th September 2012.
