What people are saying about THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE.

"Director Kerri Norris and her two young actors, Mack Gordon and Kaitlin Williams, resourcefully recreate the magic of Narnia as a theatre of the imagination." | Jerry Wasserman, The Province

"In a month where stages are awash in spectacle, there is something lovely and heartwarming about being told a fantastic tale in an intimate setting. With The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Pacific Theatre offers just this; a timeless and familiar story relayed in a fresh and meaningful way." | Brian Paterson, Laura Murray PR

"Whether you've seen this production before or not, go, find out for yourself the wonders that await you beyond the wardrobe for there is plenty of magic still to be found in Pacific Theatre’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." | Mark Robins, GayVancouver.Net

"It was a lot of fun! The two person interpretation works perfectly for the stage because it plays on the real magic of theatre: make believe. Watching the actors quickly shift from one character to another was funny, shocking and powerful. Very well done!" | Ryan Scramstad, audience email

"Kudos to the two actors!" | Alan Woo, Fun Fun Vancouver.

"My friend and I left inspired, and I have to say I felt years younger than when I walked in just a few hours before. So this holiday season, take a cue from your childhood and leave the real world behind – at least for a few hours. Because really, there’s a little bit of magic everywhere. All you have to do is look for it." | Melissa Cornwell, Vancouver Vantage

"I was impressed on so many levels... The storytelling blew me away. Switching characters and roles, even Santa Clause being played by your female actor... I've been telling everyone about it. Wow! Thank you." | Jonathan Derouchie, audience email

"Even if Lucy and Peter were not able to rediscover the wardrobe’s magic, Kaitlin Williams and Mack Gordon allowed the audience to create their own magic through the power of imagination." | John Jane, Review Vancouver

"A wooden floor, a cozy chair, an antique lamp, an old chest…and a wooden wardrobe. This simply lit, cozy stage is the setting for Pacific Theatre’s The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Rather than mount a large production with all four children from the original story, plus the rest of the menagerie, the roles are taken over by two talented young actors, Mack Gordon (Peter) and Kaitlin Williams (Lucy). Each of the two transform into characters with the donning of a coat from the wardrobe, and/or contortion of their faces and bodies." | Ariane Colenbrander, Ariane C Designs
