This dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ classic work faithfully recreates the
magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White
Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from
an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The
intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is
determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of
Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this
exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the
slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan’s
resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowing of the four new rulers of
Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn,
the centaur and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr.
and Mrs. Beaver and Tumnus the Faun. This story of love, faith, courage
and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of
life.

Frequently asked questions

How do I purchase tickets for my group?
The easiest and fastest ways are to either call us at 714.690.2900 or to visit the show page of the performance you wish to attend and click the BUY TICKETS button of the performance you wish to attend.

What payment methods do you accept?
We accept checks, Purchase Orders, and major credit cards.
Purchase orders must contain the wording: “No refunds for absent students or faculty.”
There is a $5.00 convenience fee for all online or phone orders.

Do you accept reservations without payment?
We accept reservations, but payment must be received within 10 days or else the reservation is released. On occasion, and on a case-by-case basis, we can extend this deadline. This deadline is also decreased, the closer to selling out we are.

How does ticketing and seating work?
Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis on the day of the show. We will e-mail you a ticket, good for your whole group, approximately 10 days prior to your performance day. We do not send one ticket per student, just the letter.

Seating begins 30 minutes prior to show-time, and is based on the order in which you arrive and check-in at the theatre doors. Your entire group must be on-site in order to be seated, or else your group will be split at theatre management’s discretion.

How long is the performance? Is there an intermission?
Each show has a different length, but generally they range from 90 minutes to 2 hours. For field trip performances, we try to avoid intermissions. If a break is unavoidable for production reasons, we will allow a 5-minute stretch break. There are no concessions sold in the theatre during field trip performances.

Can my students meet the cast?
For most of our shows the cast will be in the lobby after the performance to allow your students the chance to meet them, get autographs, and/or take pictures. This is a wonderful bonus for your students! While we do our best to make sure this happens, there may be certain performances when this cannot occur due to production logistics.

What ages are the shows appropriate for?
If it’s in the book, it’s in the play.
All of our field trip shows are appropriate for 6th grade and up. However, none of our shows are ever inappropriate. Meaning, younger students can certainly attend they just may not have the same comprehension of the material as an older student. There is never any foul language*. However, it is always best to discuss the show with a Phantom Projects representative or to research the material in advance if there are concerns.
*Certain productions may contain language consistent with the era and societal mentality of the time.

Are there group discounts?
Our field trip performances are already at a discounted rate. Our public performances are generally more than three times that amount. We do offer group discounts for our 7pm performances at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. Please contact the La Mirada Box Office for more details at 562.944.9801

Are teachers/chaperones/bus drivers free with a group purchase?
Unfortunately not. One of the ways we are able to keep our prices so low is by knowing we will sell every seat at the discounted field trip prices.

What if I have more or less students on the day of the show?
We do not offer refunds for absent students or faculty. Once a payment is received, there are no refunds. If you find you need more seats, call us in advance. Extra students brought to the theatre on the day of the show may not be able to take a seat if we are sold-out.

Can my students audition for your shows?
We cast our shows “age appropriate.” So, if the character is 14, we will probably cast a 14 year old. So yes, your students certainly can! Visit our audition page for more info, by clicking here.

The only spaces likely to be found may be in the auxiliary parking lot I – 1/4 mile away, and about a 10-minute walk to the Center. During the weekdays, it is $5 to park private cars. Permits can be purchased at the yellow automated kiosk beside the box office (there are several yellow automated kiosks around campus) or at Campus Safety at the entrance to campus on Citrus (where the big marquee is). Please note the price to park is subject to change.
