Dear Friends, I hope you are here because you love this story, because that is truly why it's being shared with you today. C.S. Lewis published the book in 1950, and it remains a treasured classic in classrooms and households around the world. Many remember it being read to them at an early age and remember rediscovering it when they could read it themselves. If this happens to be your introduction to this work, I hope you will pick up the book and give it a read afterward — maybe delving further into the Narnia series. There is much to be discovered in its pages. Prominent in the story’s bones is the concept of transformation. The wardrobe transforms into a magical portal, winter transforms into spring and characters experience transformations throughout. Lewis, a British writer, first conceived the book during World War II when his country was ravished by bombings, and innocent children’s lives were endangered. He promotes the hope that love can transform the world and the belief that children can comprehend important notions and play significant roles, even in challenging times. It has been a great honor and joy to creatively explore the characters and vibrant images that inhabit Narnia. Life in the world of this play is invigorating to say the least, and I am most grateful to the design team, staff and incredible cast of nine for bringing so much love for this story to this production. “Let us go on and take the adventure that shall fall to us.” — C.S. Lewis Blessings,

Dance and circus arts bring ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ to roaring life in a most original way By Julie Bookman 12 ENCOREATLANTA.COM



hy build a sleigh for the White Witch when several acrobatic artists can be that sleigh? Audiences at The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe can look forward to just this sort of “adventurous theatrical magic,” says well-known Atlanta actor Tess Malis Kincaid, who plays the White Witch. She’s the one who furiously drives the sleigh in the Alliance Theatre staging of C.S. Lewis’ 1950 children’s classic. Director Rosemary Newcott and choreographer Jen MacQueen have taken a straightforward stage adaptation by le Clanché du Rand and flipped it on its lion paws in many unexpected ways. Du Rand wrote a one-act touring production for two players, but the script’s narrative style allows for a certain amount of artistic freedom, one big reason it appealed to Newcott, who leads the Alliance’s Theatre for Youth and Families program. So in this staging, nine performers — seven with strong dance and circus arts skills — help reveal through choreographed movement the story of four children who climb through a magic wardrobe and into the fantastical land of Narnia, where they find adventure and mythical creatures, good and evil, and plenty more.

The movement artists won’t depart from the story to do a little dance here and there. Instead, their intricately designed steps and positions will help reveal the mysterious tale in a show-while-telling manner. They’ll also help convey scenery and assist with setting props. When a teacup is needed, they’ll have something to do with its sudden appearance. When the story brings us to a lamppost in the snow-laden forest, it, too, will be a living and breathing thing. “I hardly ever get to work with this much freedom,” says MacQueen. “We are the set. We are the trees, we are the lamppost the children see when they first step into Narnia.” For example, she says: “Our lamppost is a twoperson upside-down inverted stack. One girl has a lit globe between her feet, and she’s upside-down on top of another actor-dancer.” Early in her career, director Newcott acted with Atlanta’s Academy Theatre. “Physical metaphor” movement, inspired by the innovative Pilobolus Dance Theater, was a signature. Because the Lewis classic is rooted in transformation, Newcott felt the style was “particularly right” for this show. “It has strains of Pilobolus, strains of contemporary, strains of the circus,” is how

Director Rosemary Newcott and choreographer Jen MacQueen have taken a straightforward stage adaptation and flipped it on its lion paws in many unexpected ways.


MacQueen encapsulizes her choreography. Both she and Newcott say that creating this Lion has been a joyous process that began with lengthy discussions about what images and movement patterns would work in various scenes. “Jen is the perfect collaborator,” Newcott says. Both artists were open to trying ideas, eliminating when necessary, revising and tweaking again and again to serve the needs of the story “and bring a beloved book to life.” The dancers also provided input, Newcott says. They were cast for their physical and mental agility and because they were unafraid to experiment physically. Rehearsals involved lots of creative problem-solving. 14 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

MacQueen’s circus vocabulary has become such a central part of her life “that it worms its way into everything I do everywhere.” She teaches dance at Kennesaw State University and classes elsewhere ranging from rhythm tap to the Cyr wheel (a large singlering acrobatic apparatus). And she owns Akrosphere, a full-scale circus arts and aerial studio in Alpharetta. Kincaid, last seen at the Alliance as Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, appreciates that Lion has “encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone.” The sleigh ride, for example, entails “moving in and out of each other in unusual ways. It’s been interesting, challenging and a whole lot of fun.” A


British author C.S. Lewis (top), the creator of the Narnia universe, wrote the children’s book series between 1949 and 1954. His great lion Aslan is a large, talking animal who is terrifying, magnificent and beautiful all at once. AT RIGHT: The wardrobe that plays a magical role is readied in the scene shop.


A Story Held Dear

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first and best known of seven novels in The Chronicles of Narnia series, ranks alongside The Wizard of Oz and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as the most treasured children’s stories of all time. Tess Malis Kintcaid, the White Witch in the Alliance production, says it affected her deeply as a child. “I clearly remember that I actually cried when reading it on my own when I was middle-school age. I remember the power of the words. I remember my great love, respect and admiration for Aslan [the mighty lion]. At one point in the story I was so, so sad.” Choreographer Jen MacQueen says she grew up with parents “who were awesome about The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and other epic fantasy tales.” Like

those, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe never felt like a children’s story to her because “it doesn’t talk down to children the way some books do. It treats them with the intelligence they have.” She’s always thought of Lion as an “unassuming adventure story” — something you could imagine possibly happening to you. “And oh my gosh, who doesn’t secretly want that to happen to them?” A — Julie Bookman

In a still-quiet area a short distance from Oxford, the Kilns (above) is where C. S. Lewis lived with his brother Warnie. In the study of the Kilns is the manual typewriter (below) used at times by both C.S. and Warren Lewis when responding to the copious correspondence written to the author following the publishing of his books, especially from children when The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe came out in America. Usually, C.S. Lewis responded with handwritten notes.

SPECIAL THANKS Kim Bowers-Rheay Baran & the dramaturgy students at Clairemont Elementary & The Museum School Barry Stewart Mann & the dramaturgy students of the Friends School Alliance Theatre Education Department and Drama Camps Tom Key Pam Joyce Frank Wittow The Dramaturgy by Students program is a “real world” project offered by the Alliance Arts for Learning Institute in which an Alliance Institute teaching artist collaborates with a classroom teacher and students as they serve as Jr. Dramaturgs for an actual Alliance stage production. The Jr. Dramaturgs’ research process includes reading the play, researching the author of the source material, characters, settings, historical and science content and other subjects that may provide information for the audience, director, actors and designers of the play.

jr. dramaturgs Bringing the title to life: The Jr. Dramaturgs of Clairemont Elementary and The Museum School of Avondale Estates share some of their research on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Welcome to Narnia! ASLAN THE LION He is as big as a refrigerator or battleship. Aslan is bold, noble, selfless and shines like the sun. Very protective of Narnia. RIGHT: Aslan by Ila K. LIONS Male lion’s tail can be 9- to 10-feet long. Second-largest cat in the world. A tiger is the largest. A group of lions is called a pride. A lion’s fur is golden brown with a large mane. Lions sleep half the day. The female does most of the hunting. Lions are located in the grassland of Africa and India. Lions can weigh 370-500 puonds. Lions can live in the wild 8-10 years. They can live in captivity up to 25 years. RIGHT: A lion by Alejandro THE WHITE WITCH The White Witch is evil and merciless. She can turn people and animals into stone (like Medusa from mythology). Her name is Jadis and her castle is in Charn in Narnia. She wants Narnia in winter forever and never Christmas. The White Witch hates Aslan because he is good. She wants to defeat the human children because of the prophecy that says they will overthrow her. RIGHT: The White Witch as envisioned by Clara 26 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

discover us. discover you. discover us. discover you. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is an embodiment of my never-quite-grown-out-of idea that there are all sorts of worlds brushing up against ours. Some of them almost identical to this, while others are vastly and whimsically not. A place where the membrane has thinned enough that we’re able to glimpse all the wonder and magic of an Elsewhere. And perhaps, if we’re brave enough, or smart enough, or lucky enough, we just may stumble upon a bridge or entryway or path or portal, and become part of a mystical, remarkable story that someone else will get to read. Elaine Oyzon-Mast (Ms. O-Mast) 3rd Grade Instructional Assistant / Exhibit Coordinator The Museum School of Avondale Estates

synopsis: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a classic of world literature. The four Pevensies — Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy — have been evacuated from London to a huge old house in the country during the bombing raids of World War II. Lucy (the youngest), explores a magical wardrobe that takes her into the winter world of Narnia, where a white witch rules, animals talk and magical, mythical creatures make their home. At first her siblings think she is playing pretend, but on a rainy day all four children enter the Wardrobe to fulfill their destinies as saviors of Narnia from the White Witch, with the help of Aslan, the lion. In this adaptation of the story, Peter and Lucy, as adults, recount their adventures to keep their memories alive in the imaginations of children of today.

about the alliance theatre The Alliance Theatre is Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. Founded in 1968, the Alliance Theatre is the leading producing theater in the Southeast, reaching more than 165,000 patrons annually. The Alliance delivers powerful programming that challenges adult and youth audiences to think critically and care deeply. Under the leadership of Susan V. Booth, Jennings Hertz Artistic Director, the Alliance Theatre received the Regional Theatre Tony Award® in recognition of sustained excellence in programming, education, and community engagement. Known for its high artistic standards and national role in creating significant theatrical works, the Alliance has premiered more than 95 original productions including Tony Award® winners The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Aida by Elton John and Tim Rice, and Alfred Uhry’s The Last Night of Ballyhoo. The Alliance has developed and premiered important American musicals with a strong track record of Broadway, touring, and subsequent productions, including the world premieres of Sister Act: The Musical, Twyla Tharp’s Come Fly Away, Bring It On: The Musical, Stephen King and John Mellencamp’s Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, Harmony – A New Musical by Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman, and most recently the world premiere of the new musical Tuck Everlasting. The Alliance also creates and nurtures the careers of artists through the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, producing the world premiere for the competition winner as part of the regular season, and the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab, providing developmental support and production resources for three performing arts projects each year. The Alliance’s dedication to providing access to the arts is reflected in its commitment to creating new work for all ages, and to bringing that work into classrooms and communities across Atlanta and throughout the region. More than 50,000 students each year experience age-specific professional performances and participate in acting classes, drama camps, and in-school initiatives through the Alliance Theatre Acting Program and Education Department. The Alliance’s groundbreaking Kathy and Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young performances offer professionally-produced, fully interactive theater for infants and toddlers; the Palefsky Collision Project invites high school artists to create and perform new civic-minded theater based on a classic text; and community acting classes and skill-building workshops engage professional artists, young actors, business leaders, and curious learners of all ages. Twice recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for leadership in arts education, the Alliance Arts for Learning Institute equips classroom teachers with theatrical techniques that link directly to school curriculum and have been empirically proven to improve student learning. These programs include Georgia Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts and Dramaturgy K–12, in which students create research material that informs Alliance productions and prepares peer audiences. The work produced by the Alliance allows locally based artists the chance to create on a nationally watched stage, building and sustaining Atlanta’s artistic community. The vision of the Alliance Theatre is to be a beacon of leadership for the national field, while remaining deeply rooted in and reflective of our local Atlanta community. MISSION Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. VISION The Alliance will lead the national field by deeply engaging with its local community, modeling radical inclusion and catalytic experiences on our stages, in our classrooms, and throughout Atlanta. alliancetheatre.org or 404.733.4650
