On March 4th Fremont Area District Library, Newaygo Area District Library and Spanky’s Pizza & Restaurant hosted meet and greets with LionHeart Productions’ cast of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to promote their upcoming performances at the Dogwood Center for Performing Arts and Grant Fine Arts Center.
As part of LionHeart Productions’ mission to educate, reach out and support the community by keeping the Arts at Heart, the cast of characters were thrilled to meet and spend time with families from the around the area. In partnership with the area libraries to promote...
...March is Reading Month, LionHeart held a drawing for a children’s version of the C.S. Lewis classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Winners also received two tickets to an upcoming performance.
Library goers and pizza patrons were able to meet Aslan, Queen Jadis the White Witch, Lucy, Susan, Edmund, Peter and the Dwarf. Attendees did arts and crafts, played games, had their pictures taken and learned about what goes into putting on a production like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Guests were also delighted with a small glimpse of what will they be seeing on stage as well as a book reading by Queen Jadis the White Witch. Meet and Greet attendees and the cast members all had a wonderful time!
The Grant Area District Library will be hosting a Meet and Greet on March 18 at 10:30am. There will be another book and ticket drawing there as well. Don’t miss your chance to meet the colorful and magical characters straight out of the wondrous world of Narnia!
