Idaho Theater Features Narnia

From the Idaho Statesman: GREAT FAMILY SHOW OPENS IN NAMPA
The Encore Theatre Company will present "The Chronicles of Narmia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," by C.S. Lewis, for four performances this month.

It will run at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18, 19, 20, and at 2 p.m. Oct. 20 at the Nampa Civic Center.

Center director Bill Stephan says the show faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion (played by Joe Peppley) as he struggles with the White Witch (Fern Gautier) and the four children who find their way into Narnia through an old wardrobe.

One of the finest actors/singers in the valley, Gregg Irwin, is playing Tumnus, and the director is Jodi Perry. Stacy Irwin, Gregg's wife, is the choreographer.

Jodi says this is a story of faith, courage and love, with its triumph of good over evil offering a true celebration of life.

Tickets are available by calling 468-555; $12 for adults and $8 for children 12 and younger.

Stephan said a portion of the proceeds for this event will benefit expansion of the center.
