The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
January 12-28 | Gyder Theater
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe follows the journeys of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, four wartime London evacuees who inadvertently wander into the exciting and fantastical land of Narnia through an old wardrobe. They arrive to find an ice-covered world of talking animals and mystical creatures which for many years has been under the fierce and cruel ruling of the evil white witch who has kept the land in a perpetual frozen state. With the arrival of the humans, an epic battle of a good and evil ensues to see which of the two forces will triumph.
by CS Lewis, Dramatized by Joseph Robinette

Traces In the Wind
Saturday, January 20 | Gyder Theater
The City of Peoria in collaboration with TheaterWorks Presents…
Traces in the Wind is a tribute to the strength and courage of three extraordinary women who survived the Holocaust through the power of the arts. This musical staged reading uncovers stories of betrayal, humiliation, and incarceration while asserting the spiritual resistance that the arts can provide. The performers are theatre graduates of The School of Creative and Performing Arts at Stephens College in Columbia, MO. The production, created by Gail Humphries Mardirosian, Dean, features an original score by Tom Andes, a music professor in the School. Over the past two years, this performance has evolved and toured, with a debut performance at the International Psychoanalytical Conference and a performance at the Embassy of The Czech Republic in Washington D.C. “Traces in the Wind” will enlighten and educate its audiences, preserving the legacy of remarkable women.

About Peoria Center for the Performing Arts
In 2007 the City of Peoria completed construction of the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts (PCPA). The $13 million facility was designed by the architectural firm Westlake Reed Leskosky. The PCPA is a joint venture with the City of Peoria and Theater Works. Theater Works, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, serves as the anchor tenant and creates engaging theatrical and educational experiences, and manages the 20,000 square foot facility. The Peoria Center for the Performing Arts consists of a 274 seat main stage auditorium, a flexible 60 seat black box theater, two classrooms, an elegant lobby, dressing rooms, backstage support areas, and office space for Theater Works.
The citizens of Peoria understand the importance the arts have on economic development, and the intrinsic impact that the arts have on the quality of life in Peoria. The Peoria Center for the Performing Arts brings award winning theater to the downtown area, as well as a variety of arts experiences, youth programming, summer camps, and special events throughout the year.
