Unlocked – The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
Date and time
Tue 16 January 2018
West Yorkshire Playhouse
Join members of the creative team, cast and crew as they discuss how the world of Narnia went from page to stage in the transformed Quarry Theatre.
Unlocked events are an exciting, new opportunity for audiences to see more of what goes on behind the scenes of some of the West Yorkshire Playhouse’s biggest and most spectacular shows. The Playhouse opens up its theatres, and invites you to witness creative discussions that illuminate the processes and decisions that are integral to bringing a show to life, and to ask some questions of your own too.
Unlocked – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will look at how Sally Cookson and her team whisks the audience away from war-torn Britain to Lewis’s magical world of Narnia. Discover how they created the majestic creature Aslan, and meet some of the actors behind those well-loved characters. For the first time ever, the impressive Quarry stage will be transformed into an epic theatre in the round to display award-winning designer Rae Smith’s icy kingdom. The Unlocked event will help you to understand how this technical feat was achieved, but will also reignite the enchanting essence of the original childhood story; young or old, there is something for everyone as the Playhouse is Unlocked!
