Issaquah Middle School’s Squak Valley Players are stepping into C.S. Lewis’ famed Narnia for this season’s drama production.
The cast of more than 40 students hopes to take you and your family on an adventure through the magical wardrobe of “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at the door. The school is located at 400 First Ave. S.E.
“These talented students have infused their modern creativity into a world where fantasy creatures abound,” director Heather Carlyle said in a press release. “While the duels, delights (of the Turkish variety) and daring adventures will please all ages, the true heart of the play is a wonderful lesson in the power of forgiveness.”
In addition to starring in the production, students are running the show. They made and designed costumes, and are responsible for staging and running the light and soundboard.
“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is a play by Joseph Robinette based on Lewis’ work.
