    Narnia fans, take notice! From C. S. Lewis’ classic, The Magician’s Nephew, comes this mysterious and dramatic play for young audiences fourth grade and up. The Magician’s Nephew runs Saturdays February 5 and 12 at 1pm and 4pm. Performances are at Main Street Theater–Chelsea Market, 4617 Montrose Boulevard in the Museum District.

    When British schoolchildren Polly and Digory use some magic rings given to them by Digory's uncle, they find themselves transported to a magical land where they encounter the evil Queen Jadis and the mysterious and powerful King Aslan.  Written to explain unanswered questions in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Magician's Nephew is the first chronologically in the series of C.S. Lewis' Narnia tales. A must-see for all Narnia fans!

    About Author C.S. Lewis
    C. S. Lewis was born in Belfast, Ireland, on November 29, 1898.  Lewis went on to receive a scholarship to University College, Oxford, in 1916. During his time at Oxford, Lewis went from being an atheist to being one of the most influential Christian writers of the 20th century; 1931 marks the year of Lewis's conversion to Christianity. He became a member of the Church of England. Lewis cites his friendship with J. R. R. Tolkien, as well as the writings of the converted G. K. Chesterton, as influencing his conversion.

    Lewis was married late in life at age fifty-eight to Joy Davidman Gresham, an American writer fifteen years his junior. They married in 1956, two years after Lewis accepted the chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge, where he finished out his career.

    The Narnia Chronicles were published from 1950 to 1956. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Magician’s Nephew, The Last Battle and other books in the series retell the Christian story in a fairy tale form.

    C. S. Lewis died at his home "The Kilns" on November 22, 1963.

    PARKING UPDATE AT CHELSEA MARKET (MAY 2014):

    As you may or may not be aware, Main Street Theater's Chelsea Market activities will move to the MATCH once it's built.  The MATCH is the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston and will break ground on May 7, 2014.  We hope to be able to move out of Chelsea market into our new home at the MATCH in the fall of 2015.  There's more information on the MATCH here: http://www.matchouston.org/

    IN THE MEANTIME:
    You may have noticed that Chelsea Market has recently lost half its parking lot in a sale to a developer. In addition, our lease on that space has expired, BUT we are being allowed to stay through our 2015 season, providing we can find solutions to some of the parking problems our activities create. This affects all our programs: the showcases on Saturday mornings, our schoolday performances, and our weekend family matinees.  We are very grateful to be able to stay at Chelsea until the MATCH is ready.  

    We want to do everything we can to help our fellow tenants and our landlord, so:

    • For SATURDAY PERFORMANCES, we have received permission from the Joy School across Chelsea Blvd. to use their parking lot.  If it is convenient for you, please check this lot first for parking and walk across the courtyard to the theater. 
    • There's also quite a bit of on-street parking on Chelsea Blvd.     

     We hope this will also make it easier for YOU as you won't have to deal with the stress of a full Chelsea Market parking lot!
