Meet the children of the LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE

Four humans and a prophecy…

In Narnia, humans are extremely rare—so rare, the word “human” is seldom used. Instead boys are called Sons of Adam and girls are Daughters of Eve. This is important, as the only way to end Narnia’s eternal winter is to follow the ancient prophecy and have “two Sons of Adam and two Daughters of Eve” sit on the four thrones of Cair Paravel…

Still following? If not, don’t worry. The four Pevensie children are going to struggle a little, too – as anyone does when entering an unfamiliar land. Let’s get to know them!

Lucy Pevensie – the youngest
Lucy Pevensie is the youngest of four siblings, and the first to discover Narnia through the wardrobe and make a fast friend. The play begins with Lucy’s second trip to Narnia, as her siblings didn’t believe the stories from her first. She’s determined to show them Narnia is as real as she is—and a whole lot of fun.

Edmund Pevensie – the second youngest
Edmund is skeptical and rebellious, teasing Lucy the most out of all the siblings. He causes trouble sometimes, but he has a good heart underneath it all. He is the second sibling to enter Narnia, but he is not as lucky as Lucy. His love of the candy Turkish Delight makes it easy for the villains to trick him—will he find his way, or be lost forever?

Susan Pevensie – the second oldest
Susan is the second oldest, and like Peter, takes on a lot of responsibilities. She can be a little strict with her siblings, but only out of love. She does not believe in Narnia until she sees it, but once she does, she’s just as excited as Lucy—although she tries to be a little more cautious.

Peter Pevensie – the oldest
Peter is the oldest sibling, and very aware of it. A natural leader, he tries his best to do the right thing. In Narnia, he is determined to step up and defend his siblings against whatever foes they may face—including the dangerous Fenris Ulf.

Because of actor proximity to audience members in this production, our actor’s union is still requiring that all audience members be masked.
