Directed by Christina Pastor, 10:30 AM weekday performances — presented by arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company — continue through March 22.
The cast features Deven Anderson, Natalie Blackman, Sara Canter and Aiden Sank. A talkback with the cast follows each performance.
Here's how the show is billed: "This entertaining, innovative treatment of the classic is a heroic tale of love, faith, courage and giving. The life and death struggle for control of Narnia and the triumph of good over evil enthralls audiences of all ages."
Circle in the Square Theatre School (CITSTS), established in 1961, is the only conservatory affiliated with a Broadway theatre. Paul Libin is president and E. Colin O'Leary is executive director. Among the school's alumni are Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kevin Bacon, Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Benicio Del Toro, Felicity Huffman and Molly Shannon, among others.
The Circle in the Square Theatre is located at 50th Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue. Due to high demand, there is a wait list for tickets. For more information, call (212) 307-0388 or visit CircleSquare.org.
