Rockland District High School’s Just Off Broadway Players are busy putting the finishing touches on this year’s fall musical, “Narnia!” Based on C.S Lewis’ classic story “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” the musical production faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion; his struggle with the White Witch; and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into never-to-be-forgotten Narnia.

“Narnia!” will be presented Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., Nov. 12 through 20; plus a 2 p.m. matinee final Sunday, Nov. 21 at RDHS, 400 Broadway. Tickets are $6, $4 dollars for students and senior citizens. Tickets will be available at the door.

Director Alison Machaiek said “Narnia!” is a story of love, faith, courage and giving. With its triumph of good over evil, it is a true celebration; a musical and visual treat for the whole family, she said.

The show also promises a great vocal selection, plenty of action and special effects as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her control and end the reign of Aslan.

The large cast features Nate Boggs as Aslan, Brighde Curtin as the White Witch and Conor Pfister as the dangerous Fenris Ulf. The four children are portrayed by Tina Payson, Madison Sturks, Patrick Johnson and Ian Foss. Devon Sewell depicts the Professor, while Misty Seekins is Mrs. Macready. The evil band of wolves includes Joe Nelson, Donald Prescott, David Harrison and Cole Barbour. The White Witch’s frosty attendants are played by Deirdre Arruda, Alex Calamari, Maxine Burretta and Emma Peabody. The beaver trio includes Dominic Cuccinello, Cat Fletcher and Cole Chase. Keegan Ross plays Mr. Tumnus, Travis Borkowski plays the White Stag, John Gerry plays Father Christmas with Phoebe Ferriaolo as his trusted Elf; and David “Mr. Jo” Johanson plays the Dwarf.

The larger cast of Narnians include Zoey Proctor, Allison Ward, Hannah Hersom, Sam Johnson, Abby Hersom, Samantha Calamari, Kaitlen Cutchins, Emma Davis, Chelsea Hawksley, Misty Seekins, Devon Sewell and Phoebe Ferriaolo.

Machaiek directs the production, assisted by technical director David Johanson. Barbara Hendricks is the vocal director, and Marlene Hall directs the pit band.
