HARRISBURG, Ill. (Nov. 14, 2018) - Narnia is coming to Southeastern Illinois College Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. The musical will be directed by Gareth York in the George T. Dennis Visual & Performing Arts Center Theatre.
Based on the classic C.S. Lewis Novel The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Narnia starts with Peter (Jordan Richey of Benton), Susan (Kady Lampley of Benton), Lucy (Paige Clore of Norris City), and Edmund (Carter Reed of Harrisburg), as the war has forced them to be sent to the safety of Marbleton Manor. The children find nothing to do but explore, and this leads them to a rather interesting wardrobe. As the children are transported through the wardrobe, they find themselves in Narnia, where the White Witch (Joli Murphy of Springerton) always keeps it winter but never Christmas. That is until Aslan (Braden Cummins of Carrier Mills) comes to fight the White Witch so spring can come once again.
Additional lead roles include Alex McRoy of Harrisburg as Mr. Beaver, Meredith Wolf of Harrisburg as Mrs. Beaver, John Suh of Ziegler as Father Christmas and Billy Lewis of Carrier Mills as Mr. Tumnus.
“I am pleased to be directing the musical Narnia at Southeastern Illinois College,” said York. “I have really enjoyed the experience of working with this cast while watching them bring this fantasy land to life. This musical will bring out the inner child in all of us. Come climb through the wardrobe and join us in the wonderful land of Narnia.”
The show’s stage manager is Aaron McRoy and music director is Cory Garmane. Costumes will be designed by Janet Hart and Gareth York, and lighting designer for the show is Kyle Upchurch. John Hart of Hart’s Music in Harrisburg will provide sound equipment.

The cost is $25 per person or $130 for a table of six, and includes tickets to see Narnia immediately following dinner that evening.Seating for the dinner is limited and must be reserved by Monday, Nov. 26.

About The Anns
The Anns is a vocal trio consisting of Rog Ann Ellithorpe, boB Ann Iltis, and Ruth Ann Levinson. The trio is a direct extension of the vocal duo RognboB with the addition of Ruth Ann. Musically, our goal is to continue to continue to preach the “Gospel of Goof,” with fun harmonies and unlikely arrangements. Preferring titillating lyrics, Anns’ tunes tend to leave the listener confused or amused. And that is what sets Anns apart. Anns perform RognboB favorites, as well as new Anns originals and parodies. Anns also seeks to bring great writing forward, performing covers from great writers, Lou and Peter Berryman, Austin Lounge Lizards, and Dan Hicks to a live stage.
We encourage anyone who likes the Anns to join us by simply adding Ann.
