The Silver Chair is Coming to the Stage (Trailer) UPDATE: The Production Has Been Postponed

The Logos Theatre (Taylors, SC) has announced a stage adaptation of The Silver Chair. View the trailer.

It will run from December 4 to May 1. Tickets are currently only available with season passes, but that will change eventually.

This is the Logos Theatre’s fourth Chronicles of Narnia adaptation. With Douglas Gresham’s approval and praise, they previously did stage productions of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and The Horse and His Boy.

    Hi is there a way to watch the horse and its boy online?

    • coracle says:

      No, the play could not be filmed and played online, as the book is copyright, and permission was given only to do a stage production.

    This looks incredible! I wish I lived in the US so I could see it

    • Keeper of Lantern Waste says:

      If it’s any consolation, I live in the US, but to far to get there :'(

      Everyone who lives near the Logos theater is insanely lucky!<3

        I am very blessed to live about 20 minutes away from the Logos Theatre. I saw the Prince Caspian and the Horse & His Boy and they were worth every penny and phenomenal. Got to meet Douglas Gresham too! Extremely fortunate to live where I live! Also the Logos Theatre hopes to open a Narnia museum someday too šŸ™‚

    Awesome! Good to see at least one adaptation of this book coming out!(lol)
    How will they do the giants, I wonder?
    Or the bit with the snake!?!

  4. Mrs. Beaver says:

    I’m going to guess they’ll use a puppet for the snake, like they have done in the past for horses. The giants in the distance could be puppets as well. Harfang giants? Well, there are a variety of ways to swing that.

    I reeeally wish I could have seen “A Horse and His Boy!”; I lived too far away and I only saw the video clips. However, I recently moved a day-trip’s distance from Greenville, SC, so woo-hoo! Count me and my family in for “The Silver Chair”!

    OMG YESSSS (like a snake) šŸ˜€

    These plays really do look brilliant and I wish I could have seen them too (I’m over the other side of the Atlantic, unfortunately!). I’d love to see more of The Silver Chair itself in this video, but I guess the production hasn’t come far enough yet (especially with the current situation) for them to be able to film any more excerpts. But hey, just give away the most important and pivotal line in the whole story, why don’t they ā€” “by the great Lion, by Aslan himself”!! OK, anyone who hasn’t read the book won’t know the significance of those words yet, but if they watch this trailer and then see the play, that IS a bit of a spoiler…

    • For Aslan! says:

      The Theatre is still working on set, prop, and outfit design at this point… The play doesn’t debut till December.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be able to go see this, but it looks amazing! I really wish I could have seen The Horse and His Boy too, because it’s probably my favorite Narnia book.

    • For Aslan! says:

      I am one of the fortunate ones who did get to see the Horse & His Boy. It was phenomenal! Extremely well made in all aspects and considering they have a smallish size stage they utilized all their space very well. Also the Logos Theatre does embellish the story a little so it was cool to see them bring Lord Bar’s kidnapping and attempted escape to life.

  8. Skilletdude says:

    Not to be too negative, but why isn’t the chair in this video silver? And for that matter, why would the Lady of the Green Kirtle construct a chair with “Aslan-like” imagery on it? I know this is just an announcement trailer, but come on!

    • Keeper of Lantern Waste says:

      That’s a good point. I’m guessing since they cut the chair in half the prop is probably wood or something, so maybe they haven’e finished the paint job?

      As for the chair having lions… maybe as a mockery? Or maybe the set designer was like Narnia prop=lions

      • Skilletdude says:

        The goal of Rilian’s bewitchment, why he is restrained in the chair, is to make him forget who he is, where he came from, and what he believes. Seems like having lions on the chair would jug his memory just a little. I agree this prop must have been chosen just because the lions evoke Narnia, but it’s kind of goofy when you think about it.

    • Glumpuddle says:

      Yeah I am assuming this is not the actual chair or actor.

    • For Aslan! says:

      Since the production doesn’t come out till December, they probably used what they had available in props already so they can get the teaser out there and will be crafting a brand new Silver Chair for the real play.
