Langford’s Lighthouse Christian tackles Narnia story on stage

Lavish production is a schoolwide effort from K-12

Lighthouse Christian Academy in Langford is presenting a school-wide production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, starting Wednesday (May 7) at the Isabelle Reader Theatre in Spencer middle school.

“Ours is a whole school production, from Kindergarten to Grade 12,” said Lighthouse vice-principal Sharon Ocello, who also plays a small role.

“We have about 155 students who are fully involved.”

Senior students are not only on stage, but working in backstage and production roles, while younger students are featured in particular scenes.

Melina Keery, the school’s drama and art teacher, is directing the play, which takes its story line from the Chronicles of Narnia series.

Showtime is 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Tickets are $8 at the door for adults, $5 for students 12-under,  free for children four and under. A family pass costs $25.
