Mr. Beaver: Talking creatures of the forest who shelter the Pevensie children and take them to Aslan. Jadis: The White Witch. She makes her first appearance in The Magician s Nephew. Jadis is immortal because she ate a magic apple. Jadis tempts Edmund and corrupts him. Edmund Pevensie: Younger of the two Pevensie boys. He is the second to travel to Narnia and later betrays his siblings to the White Witch. He is claimed by the Witch, but is redeemed by Aslan s sacrifice. Lucy Pevensie: Youngest of the Pevensie children. She is the first to discover Narnia and the most consistently faithful to Aslan. Peter Pevensie: Oldest of the Pevensie children. He is named High King by Aslan. Susan Pevensie: Oldest of the two Pevensie girls. Susan is witness to Aslan s death and resurrection. Maugrim: The wolf who serves as the Captain of the White Witch s secret police. Mr. Tumnus: A faun who befriends Lucy. He is punished for doing so by The White Witch. The White Witch: See Jadis

3 The Man Behind Narnia Born on November 29, 1898, in Belfast Ireland, C.S. Lewis went on to teach at Oxford University and became a renowned writer. He is known throughout the world as the author of The Chronicles of Narnia fantasy series, which have been adapted into various films for the big and small screens. Lewis's mother died when he was 10, and he went on to receive his pre-college education at boarding schools and from a tutor. During WWI, he served with the English army and was sent home after being wounded by shrapnel. He then chose to live as a surrogate son with Janie Moore, the mother of a friend of Lewis's who was killed in the war. During the 1950s, Lewis started to publish the seven books that would comprise The Chronicles of Narnia children's series, with The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (1950) being the first release. The story focused on four siblings who, during wartime, walk through an armoire to enter the magical world of Narnia, a land resplendent with mythical creatures and talking animals. In 1954, Lewis joined the faculty of Cambridge University as a literature professor, and in 1956 he married an American English teacher, Joy Gresham, with whom he had been in correspondence. Lewis was full of joy during the years of their marriage, though Gresham died of cancer in Lewis grieved deeply for his wife and shared his thoughts in the book A Grief Observed, using a pen name. In 1963, Lewis resigned from his Cambridge position after experiencing heart trouble. He died on November 22, 1963, in Headington, Oxford.

5 Theatre Etiquette It s important to be a good audience member, and a great performance begins with YOU. Follow these simple guidelines to have a great time at the theatre! Arrive promptly to the theatre or auditorium. Take care of bathroom business and drinks of water before taking your seat. Enter the seating area quietly and in an orderly manner Do not distract your neighbor s attention from the stage by talking or making noise during the performance. Avoid leaving your seat during a performance unless it is an emergency situation. Show respect for the actors by giving them your full attention during the performance. Taking photographs is distracting to the other members of the audience, and taking flash pictures may cause serious accidents to the performers who may be momentarily blinded. Show your appreciation for the work of the actors and technicians by applauding at the end of the performance and when the actors take their bows. Whistling and shouting are not polite. When the performance is over, wait patiently for your turn to exit. BIBLIOGRAPHY Green, Roger Lancelyn., and Walter Hooper. C.S. Lewis: A Biography. London: HarperCollins, Print. Lewis, C.
