“ENCHANTING AND FUN FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY” – BROADWAY WORLD
“SOME ADVENTURES TAKE US FAR FROM HOME. SOME ADVENTURES LEAD US TO OUR DESTINY.” – C.S. LEWIS, THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE
The thrilling, well-known tale takes four children from a dusty English mansion to a mythical, far-away world gripped in an epic battle between the forces of good and evil. Helped along by the fawn, Mr. Tumnus, the friendly Beaver family and a forest of talking animals, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy take centre stage in the struggle to free Narnia from the forces of the White Witch as they await the triumphant return of Aslan the Lion.
The magical, wintery landscape of Narnia will be brought to life onstage in the Martha Cohen Theatre through the use of extraordinary scenic elements, costumes and puppetry, as the characters learn profound lessons of courage, loyalty and wisdom. "Ceaselessly inventive and joyously imaginative” (National Post), The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is sure to be an exciting and deeply heartwarming theatrical experience for children and adults alike.

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
