CS LEWIS' timeless children's classic about the fairytale land of Narnia, is brought to the theatre this Easter.

Four children playing hide and seek in the country home of an old professor, stumble upon an enchanted wardrobe that will take them places they never dreamed of.

They are whisked into the spectacular parallel universe known as Narnia - a land of magical proportions where woodland animals talk and mythological creatures roam...

Sideshow Theatre's production of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe opened at the Kenneth More Theatre, Oakfield Road, Ilford, yesterday (Wednesday).

Director Phil Halpin says: "We get to stage some fantastic battles and have been having huge fun with some of the scenes.

"It really is a piece of theatre for adults and children alike - I grew up on the Narnia tales, and now, with the recent film, a whole new generation has been exposed to this brilliant mythical world!"
