We’ve teamed up with Sunderland Empire to give two lucky Living North readers the chance to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with their families on opening night

Final casting has been announced today for the smash-hit Leeds Playhouse production of C.S. Lewis’ classic The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe as it heads to Sunderland Empire, from Tuesday 30th November to Saturday 4th December 2021. TV and theatre star Samantha Womack completes the cast to play Narnia’s evil White Witch. 

Samantha Womack says of her role: ‘Having been a huge fan of C S Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe for as long as I can remember, I am thrilled to be playing the The White Witch. The book has always been a magical read and having watched incredible actors interpret this role in the past, I am excited to see what she holds for me. This production is so beautifully conceived with thrilling sets and costumes and an amazingly talented cast and creative team. I can’t wait to seduce, plot and terrify Narnia into a permanent winter.’ 

Joining Samantha are:  Ammar Duffus (Peter Pevensie), Shaka Kalokoh (Edmund Pevensie), Robyn Sinclair (Susan Pevensie) and Karise Yansen (Lucy Pevensie). Aslan is played by Chris Jared, Mr Tumnus by Jez Unwin, Mr Beaver by Sam Buttery and Maugrim by Michael Ahomka-Lindsay.  

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is produced on tour by Elliott & Harper Productions and Catherine Schreiber and based on the original Leeds Playhouse production which broke box office records in 2017. Now it’s time to step through the wardrobe again. Join Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter on their magical journey where they’ll meet a faun, talking beavers, Aslan and, of course, the White Witch.
