Narnia filled the halls at Beacon Christian School last week as students performed to packed audiences.
They performed the musical April 18 for area school children and in the evening on April 19 and 20.
All students participated as choir, cast and crew in the production.
Teacher Ron VandenBurg says when he told the Grade 6, 7 and 8 classes that Narnia would be the spring’s musical the room was “filled with excitement and smiles.”
VandenBurg says during rehearsals, stage directors were filled with biblical shorthand as stories from the Bible were used to relate to certain scenes.
Students came forward and volunteered to build, paint, do make-up and take leadership in something bigger than themselves, he adds.
VandenBurg says God has given the school many gifted, created people who see what needs to be done and do it.
“On our program people could check out our thank you list, and I can guarantee that it is the most diverse list of individuals and groups that ever wanted to help out a Christian school’s musical,” he says.
Supporters included local sponsors, an archery club, three community theater groups and a medieval society.
