Mila Says: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Mila, our dedicated seven-year-old reviewer, surprised her mom, Shayna Vincent, by bringing her to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, with a bit of help from her co-reviewer and mother’s mother, Johannah Luza. All three generations enjoyed the magical trip through the wardrobe to Narnia. Check out Mila’s and Johanna’s reviews for more details.


Mila: My grandma and I surprised my mom and took her to see this play. My mom said the story is even older than my grandma is! It was a book written many years ago about four siblings who step inside of a wardrobe and go into a magic land. A wardrobe is like a closet that you can move.

There’s a witch in the play, and even though most witches wear all black, this one wears all white. She wears white because she only likes the winter. She won’t let any other season come along in her magic land. But the four kids meet a friendly lion, and he doesn’t like the witch.

You’ll have to see the play to find out what happens when the witch tries to get rid of the lion. I’m seven, so I was old enough not to be too scared, but little bitty kids shouldn’t go. My little sister probably would have screamed if she had been there because she’s just three. If you’re five or older, I know you’ll really like this play. There’s lots of excitement, and it never gets boring!

Johannah: This play kept the audience’s attention, adults and kids both. Courage and honesty always win, and good over evil prevails in this iconic and well-known story. I was impressed with the costumes and set design, and it was so good to get out and see a Dallas Children’s Theater performance again! A thumbs up on this one!
