BHT offering free performances for schools

BoarsHead Theater is offering free performances of the C.S. Lewis classic “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” this October to schools. The one-act play runs 45 minutes, followed by a 15-minute question and answer session. Performances are at 10 a.m. on October 15, 16, 20, 21, 22 and 23. To reserve space for your students, contact Molly Keenan at 517-484-7800 ext. 102.

Bring your students on a wondrous journey through the wardrobe, into the magical land of Narnia—filled with mystical creatures, ancient prophecies, and glorious battles between good and evil. Join Aslan the Lion, the White Witch, Mr. Tumnus, and all your favorite Narnia characters, as they struggle for the future of the kingdom, with the help of four brave siblings: Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy.

Directed by Bruce Bennett, the play is performed by four talented actors from the BoarsHead Second Company, Emily Hawkes, Andrew Lewis, Ashleigh Millett and Maren Rosenberg, who portray nearly a dozen roles in this truly magical and memorable version of the timeless Lewis favorite.

BoarsHead Theater can accommodate up to 250 people per performance for this production that is appropriate for all age groups. Busing to and from the venue will be the sole responsibility of the attending school.

BoarsHead Theater is proud to offer these admission-free matinees as a way to expose area youth to the rewards of live theater and to thank the greater Lansing community for their ongoing support.

Public performances for the production will take place on October 17 and 24 at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Special engagement pricing for the show is $5 for children and $8 for adults. Tickets for these performances may be purchased through the Box Office by calling 517-484-7805.

BoarsHead Theater is located at 425 S. Grand Avenue, Lansing, Mich., 48933. For more information, please visit www.boarshead.org.
