Images have been released offering a first look at The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, which opens at West Yorkshire Playhouse this week.

Directed by Sally Cookson, the show is a unique take on the classic CS Lewis legend, and features a cast including Carla Mendonça as the Wicked Witch – draped in 24 metres of white faux fur – alongside Peter Caulfield, Lucy Tuck and Alan Francis.

The piece, produced in collaboration with Elliott & Harper, has designs by Rae Smith, music by Benji Bower, sound from Ian Dickinson and lighting by Bruno Poet.

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe runs at West Yorkshire Playhouse from 6 December to 21 January.
