Vera and I were at a sneak peek at the Kids Performing Repertory Theatre last weekend. I’ve never been behind the scenes at any professional musical before, so it felt as if we had been ushered into a brand new world.
Lots of kids in furry costumes. Here are the eager beavers.
We also met a lion and a witch….Yes, it’s Narnia the Musical: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, based on the fictional masterpiece by C. S. Lewis.
Narnia the Musical tells a wonderfully heartwarming tale of loyalty, bravery, repentance, and forgiveness. It was first staged in Singapore by Kids Performing in December 2009, with all 3 shows sold out then.
Back by popular demand, this year’s production features singer-prodigy Julia Abueva, who will portray the White Witch, with an international cast of adults and children from Australia, England, USA, Japan, Philippines and Singapore.
Here is “Aslan” (Vocal Director Terence Guillermo, in the orange hoodie) addressing the animal folks. Interestingly, the role of Aslan will be played by a female – Eirene Enriquez, with Terence as alternate actor.
You know the story. The Pevensie children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, stumble into the magical world of Narnia through a wardrobe. And they join forces with Aslan and his army of flora and fauna to battle the White Witch. Here is Peter, Susan, and Lucy, the little one who first discovered the wardrobe’s secret.
But where’s Edmund?
Oh no, he got caught by the White Witch, here played by Eirene Enriquez.
Here’s a sneak peek for you! Catch the White Witch, her minions, and Edmund in action.
What better way to spend the upcoming holidays than in the magical world of Narnia?
