The four Pevensie children invite you to step through the wardrobe with them and experience an adventure along with two beavers, the White Witch, and, of course, a lion named Aslan.

The children — Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy — are the main characters in Reclaim Arts Academy’s upcoming production of C.S. Lewis’s classic "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." Performances take place at 7 p.m. Friday, April 26, and 4 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at First Baptist Church of Marble Falls, 901 La Ventana Drive.

Tickets are $7 at redeemingthearts.org or $10 at the door. Children 3 and younger get in for free.

“We are really excited about sharing this story with our community,” said the academy's Amy Stubblefield, one of the production's directors. “It's a classic that speaks to all generations because of the way it connects a fantasy world with the truth of Scripture."Who doesn't love Aslan, the victorious lion, sacrificing himself for the sake of a rather bratty little English boy? We see ourselves in that story; we recognize that we are the bratty kid who probably doesn't deserve to be rescued," she continued. "But our savior comes anyway. He takes us from the clutches of the White Witch and breathes new life into us. That's what this story is about, and we believe that people who come to see the show will be deeply touched by the visual and musical telling of this classic tale.”

The story follows the Pevensie children as they venture into Narnia, a mythical land ruled by the White Witch. At first, it seems like fun, but they soon find themselves part of a prophecy and main players in saving Narnia.

The cast and directors have been working on the production since January.
