SHOW SYNOPSIS

The first and most famous story of The Chronicles of Narnia has become a musical presentation of this unique, enchanted world filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable, both good and evil, demonic and transcendent. The principal inhabitants, however, are the intelligent talking animals ruled by the majestic King Aslan, the great lion of Narnia. Though Aslan is often absent from the land (so that his very existence is doubted by some), he returns when the need for him is greatest. And entering Narnia at a moment of high adventure are some children through a magical wardrobe to help Narnia.

CASTING INFO

Yep, this is a full out musical with vocal demands mostly moderate however, there are some roles where there is a requirement for a certain vocal range for that character (as per the composer). Where that is the case it’s been indicated in the listing of roles below.

Please note that every cast member will be expected to learn to sing some simple show melodies in chorus with the assistance of skilled vocal coaches. As well some basic choreography is required for some characters while other roles (such as the role of The Stag) will need to do more difficult choreography so experience in dance is a definite asset.

ROLES AVAILABLE:

Any character age listed below is the ideal character age according to the playwright, but casting will allow for some flexibility in those ages, while keeping as true to the playwright’s vision as possible. Also, you’ll note some characters state required vocal requirements (ranges). If you don’t know your range this web-site might help you: https://www.musicnotes.com/now/tips/determine-vocal-range/  However don’t worry if you don’t know your vocal range – our vocal coaches will be helping to make sure you can manage the vocal demands through casting.
