C.S. Lewis' beloved and magical novel comes to life through dance!

This all-ages, family-friendly world premiere, choreographed by Randy James, features members of 10 Hairy Legs dance company and special guests.

The classic story The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, set in the fictitious Narnia, features all of your favorite characters: the heroine Lucy and her siblings, the White Witch, Tumnus, Maugrim, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, nymphs, giants and, of course, Aslan the lion. Follow them through the land of forever winter to see if they can break the evil spell cast by the White Witch.

10 Hairy Legs, founded by Randy James in 2012, is a dance company—comprised entirely of men—performing James' work as well as existing and newly commissioned works. 10 HL does not reflect a specific point of view about the male experience, but rather celebrates and explores the tremendous technical and emotional range of the male dancer. Randy James, at the forefront of this generation's choreographers, educators and arts advocates, is the driving force of 10 Hairy Legs, serving as its Artistic Director. James was awarded his third Choreographic Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts in 2014. In 2015, 10 Hairy Legs launched 10 HL Projects, which includes women for specific productions outside of the all male company. The first of these is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
