C.S. Lewis’ beloved novel Prince Caspian is getting the live-action treatment at the Museum of the Bible’s World Stage Theater in Washington, D.C., complete with life-size creatures, flying trees and a script true to the story.

The production, presented by The Logos Theatre, a division of the nationally acclaimed Academy of Arts Ministries based in Taylors, South Carolina, will run at the Museum of the Bible from March 1 through April 27.

One of seven novels that comprise The Chronicles of Narnia series, Prince Caspian was written by Lewis in 1950. The book continues the adventures of the Pevensie children as they return to Narnia to assist Prince Caspian in reclaiming his rightful throne. The theatrical adaptation was written by Nicole Chavers Stratton, artistic director of The Academy of Arts Ministries, vetted by Lewis’ stepson, Douglas Gresham.

“As I began to look for a script, I quickly realized that no one had ever made a full adaptation for this book, so after talking with the C.S. Lewis Company, I decided to try my hand at my first Narnia adaptation,” Stratton said. “I was fortunate to have my script vetted by Douglas Gresham, the stepson of C.S. Lewis, and enjoyed such a wonderful working relationship with him.”
