Theater group brings Lewis' 'Narnia' to life

Dec. 02, 2007 @ 11:58 PM

HUNTINGTON -- On a dreary, gray Sunday afternoon, the Lexington Children's Theatre brought a ray of proverbial sunshine out as they opened up the closet with a creative version of C.S. Lewis' classic children's novel "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" at the Cabell County Public Library.

Free for the public, the performance used two characters from the play, Peter and Lucy, to tell the magical story of the world found behind the coats of a closet.

The two actors used imaginative storytelling, masks and voices to embody all of the characters that enter into their story, and to portray every citizen of Narnia.

The free program is just one of many hosted by the Cabell County Public Library and its branches.

The next program is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, when the Ohio Bigfoot Research Team stops by to display and present evidence of the existence of the big guy in Ohio and surrounding areas.

Their aim is to educate people about what he is, and to reassure us that he comes in peace. Among the evidence they're bringing to the library will be a collection of footprints that has never before been seen publicly.

There will be a presentation and a question-and-answer session. Bigfoot souvenirs will be for sale.
