A homeschool theater group from Limestone, Freestone and Leon counties performed a play over the weekend at First Baptist Church, Tehuacana, to the apparent delight of the audiences.
The group is called the Tri-County Players, and the play was “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” based on the fantasy novel by C.S. Lewis, first published in 1950.
The story revolves around four siblings, Peter, 13, Susan, 12, Edmund, 10, and Lucy, 8, who have been evacuated from London to escape the World War II bombings. The four end up in a large country home with an old professor and his cantankerous housekeeper. The youth come upon a large old wardrobe, in the back of which they discover a portal to another world, called Narnia, that is populated by talking animals and other magical creatures.
