The glory, and beauty that is-Narnia to go on the Boards
Tarik Jayasuriya will play the faun Tumnus, the very faun who
befriends Lucy (the youngest of the four children) when she first enters
A stage between worlds. A portal, into the world of Narnia is
being created. This magical portal, however, will only be open on
May 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29 at S. Thomas' College premises. Tickets
are available at the College office, the Barefoot Gallery, and the
Liberty Plaza lobby.
The roles of the two friendly beavers (the very same beavers who lead
the children to Aslan) will be played by Arjun De Alwis, and Milindra
Kulugammana. Dilan John will play the amiable Father Christmas, and
Chaminda Dias and Suranthaka Cabraal will play the two Leopards who are
Aslan's official messengers.
The College Hall has been modified in several ways, in order to give
you, the audience, a more realistic vision of the way Narnia would have
appeared in the mind of Her creator. We assure you that were C.S. Lewis
himself given the opportunity to watch this rendition of his timeless
classic, he would have no complaints.
Everything from the warmth of summer, to the chill of winter will be
faithfully created for you. The cast and crew of this production has
endeavored for months, planning, plotting, and executing plans and
plots, in order to bring you the unadulterated, pristine realm of Narnia.
The show will be followed by a grand fireworks display, and for those
of you who wish it, dinner on the quadrangle, while being serenaded by
the College Chamber Orchestra.
Aslan's kingdom is nearing completion. Animals have been given voice.
Waters have been given divinity. Life has been breathed into a dream.
