Peoria Christian High School Theater is proud to present, C.S. Lewis: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

 

Award-winning playwright, Joseph Robinette, faithfully recreates the amazing world of Narnia in this entertaining, dramatic adventure for the whole family. This enchanting stage adaption captures the spirit of the original story with cleverness and charm and includes many of the characters so many have grown to love. This story of faith, love, forgiveness and courage unfolds as the four Pevensie children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy enter the magical world of Narnia through a seemingly normal wardrobe. Stepping through the wardrobe they find a winter wonderland, but soon they realize all is not right in the enchanted land. The White Witch has taken over Narnia and has forced good out of the world. All too soon the children are engulfed in a battle of good versus evil. They find refuge in the camp of Aslan, the valiant Lion and learn the true meaning of love and sacrifice. This allegorical tale of spiritual warfare, love and forgiveness is a message for all ages. Come and join the Pevensie children as they enter the world of Narnia!

 

Presented with special arrangements with the Dramatic Publishing Company, Woodstock, Illinois

Conklin's Barn II Dinner Theatre presents "The Fox on the Fairway" (Sun. Nov 2, 2014 12:00 pm)

Conklin's Barn II Dinner Theatre is very excited to announce the Barn debut production of Ken Ludwig's hysterically comic ode to golf, "The Fox on the Fairway," starring Bob Lane Jr. and Eddie Urish opening September 18th for a seven week run at the Barn in Goodfield. The show will be performed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings and Sunday brunches through November 2nd.

 

"Fox on the Fairway" is a tribute to the classic Marx-Brothers style farce by Ludwig, the author of popular comedies, "Lend Me a Tenor" and "Moon Over Buffalo." "Fox" is the tale of the rivalry between country clubs Quail Valley and Crouching Squirrel and their heated annual golf tournament, which Quail Valley has lost for five years in a row, much to the chagrin of club manager Henry Bingham. This year, Henry has a sure-fire ringer on his golf roster, which leads him to make an outlandish bet on the outcome of the tournament with his rival, Crouching Suqirrel manager Dickie Bell. Unbeknownst to Bingham, his golf ringer has changed camps and is now playing for Crouching Squirrel! All is not lost, however, when Henry discovers his new assistant, Justin, is a golf prodigy. With the assistance of Quail Valley board member Pamela Peabody, who is--coincidentally--Dickie Bell's bitter ex-wife, Henry forges Justin's membership to Quail Valley and adds Justin's name to the roster. Everything will work out perfectly, as long as Justin doesn't find out his new fiancee (Quail Valley waitress Louise) has lost her engagement ring, a family heirloom. Add in Henry's monstrous shrew of a wife, Muriel, and all the pieces are in place for an outrageous romp.

 

The Barn's leading funny man, Bob Lane Jr. stars as Binghma, and the Barn welcomes back noted Peoria theatre personality Eddie Urish returning to the Barn after nearly thirty yeras, as Justin. Urish is the founder of Eastlight Theatre and Haberdasher's Dinner Theatre in Peoria and has been performing and directing on the East Coast and touring the country, most recently in the national tour of the Broadway musical, "Memphis." Mary Simon plays Pamela, with Dan Challacombe as Dickie, April Bieschke as Louise, and Pat Gaik as Muriel.

 

The production is directed by Mary Simon with set design by April Bieschke and publicity by Pat Gaik. Conklin's Barn II is known for its delicious buffet which, on evening performances, includes four main entrees featuring the Barn's renowned prime rib and fried chicken, with salad, homemade soup and cheese spread, and a choice of four taste-tempting homemade desserts. Prices for dinner and show are $33.00 on Thursday evening, $35.00 on Friday evening and Sunday brunch, and $37.00 on Saturday evening, including tax. No advance payment is required. For reservations, call the number listed above. For more information, visit the Barn online at the website listed above.
