The Stafford Players have been working diligently to put together the fall play, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” The show had a successful opening performance on Friday, Dec. 1.

From cast-members juggling to face paint, there were a ton of fun activities to entertain the audience while they were waiting for the doors to open.

Mr. Fox (Cameron Smith) helped teach audience members how to juggle.

Several of the actors made balloon animals for the younger audience members. From dogs to swords, they offered it all!

Many art students also helped out by face painting for the play. Claire Kohlhaas was one of the art students there. Ice crystals, lions and flowers were the designs to pick from.

Orchestra students helped set the mood by playing holiday music. 

Father Christmas (Jalen Long) even made a surprise appearance! There was a Photo Booth for kids to get their pictures taken with Santa. 

Overall, the play’s first performance was very successful. Excluding a few sound issues, everything ran smoothly.

The play will be showing on Dec. 1  at 7 p.m., Dec. 7-9 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 1 and 9 at 2 p.m. If you weren’t there to see it on opening night, you still have some time to go watch it. It costs five dollars for students and seven dollars for adults.
