Owner description: Think about those books, the ones that you'll always go back to, those moments in life where you think 'that's a bit like that chapter' or 'you're just like that character', those are the stories we love. We don't just want to leave those books on the shelf though, we take them down, hand them around, share them out and bring them to life. All over Oxford we find unusual spaces - these stories aren't set in theatres so we don't put them there. Castles, antique mirror tents, college gardens, bookshops and factories... we'll go wherever the stories take us, and so far we've taken over 500,000 people with us. From the thousands of children who've told classic stories in new ways through our education programme, to our professional actors and directors, you're always most likely to find us lost in a good book. 18 years, 54 shows, half a million audience members aged 5-95...we are Oxford's own Creation Theatre Company.

“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

I would heartily recommend this production to anyone of any age, though you may find it very difficult to get seats as the three in my party had to sit separately. We shared a delicious mango sorbet in the interval though! Excellent actors and I enjoyed the adaptable scenery which could be a Professor's spooky house, a cage or a wood.

“The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

We took our children and grandchildren to this yesterday. Everyone was entranced from the 5 year old up to the 70 year old. We had a wonderful time, enhanced by crepes and mulled wine in the interval!

Creation Theatre have done a fantastic job again. Well done.

“Annual Christmas Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

We have been coming to see the Creation Theatre Christmas productions for last ten years and have loved every one. Each one is always a slightly different take on a classic, from A Christmas Carol to this year's brilliant The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. My daughter saw her first show when she was 4, and now she is 14 it is still one of the highlights of her Christmas.
A side benefit of all the Xmas shows are the wonderful crepes serves both before the show and at the interval - always a treat.

“Memorable family treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

10 of us from 3 generations within the family and ages ranging in age from 7 to 68 went to watch the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe yesterday afternoon and it was just brilliant. Creation Theatre productions never fail to amaze me! Just brilliant. Venue, scenery, acting, etc etc all fabulous. We all got something different from the production which I think speaks volumes! I would recommend any production by this incredibly talented theatre company - we have never been disappointed...

“They never disappoint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Having been to several performances, the Creation Theatre never disappoint and their latest production of The Lion The Witch and The wardrobe hits the mark once more. Excellent acting, excellent costumes and as always all done with their own unique twist. If you get the opportunity go and see any of their productions you won't be sorry.
