Narnia’s magical world behind the wardrobe comes to life in Franklin

The Overlook Players will present Narnia at 7:30 p.m. from August 4-6, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Sunday, August 7, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.

Based on the classic children’s novel, Chronicles of Narnia, written by C.S. Lewis, the two-act adaptation for the stage tells the tale of four young children who stumble through a wardrobe and into a mysterious world. The story is told here with a mix of live actors and puppets.

This production is sponsored by Compassion International, a Christian aid organization helping children in poverty. Compassion International is also sponsoring a Narnia Adventureland Party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 6, in the back parking lot of the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts. Children can experience the mysterious world of Narnia through games, face-painting, adventure castles and more. Tickets are $5 per person.

Tickets for the play are $10-$13.
