Young Footliters presents Joseph Robinette’s adaptation of the C. S. Lewis novel The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe for 4 performances, September 12-14 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. The production features 32 local children in 4th grade through 10th grades and is directed by Matt Falduto. Hills Bank is the supporting sponsor.
Performances are at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts Friday, September 12 at 7pm, Saturday, September 13 at 2pm and 7pm, and Sunday, September 14 at 2pm. Tickets are $7 - $12 and are available online at www.coralvillearts.org, by phone at 319.248.9370, and in person at the CCPA box office (1301 5th Street) and Coralville Recreation Center (1506 8th Street).
Robinette’s adaptation features the characters of the novel – the four children, the talking animals, the White Witch and her followers, and the great lion Aslan – in a timeless setting that contemporary children can identify with. Director Falduto worked to create an empowering experience for the children who are in the cast and those in the audience, helping them understand the themes of the story. For example, he says that as a child, he “loved that Edmund could screw up, find forgiveness, and then become the hero. To me, that’s a very powerful message for our kids to learn.” This adaptation also presents a strong, brave Susan and a Peter who finds strength in emotion and empathy, portrayed by real life siblings Emma and David Bluder.
Young Footliters is a program of the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts offering children and teens fun, creative, and educational theater arts opportunities in a safe, positive, and professional environment. Young Footliters aims to produce quality productions and classes that promote responsibility, confidence, leadership, cooperation, and arts appreciation.
