'The Horse and His Boy' is C.S. Lewis's fifth book in the Chronicles of Narnia. The story takes place while the Pevensies — Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy — were kings and queens of Narnia and follows Shasta, a Narnian boy raised as the son of a fisherman in Calormen. After learning that his adoptive father will sell him into slavery to a wealthy Taarkaan, he confers with the Taarkaan's talking horse captured from Narnia. The two decide to escape their cruel master and run away to the freedom that Narnia brings.
'The Horse and His Boy' will run more than 40 performances from January 20 through March 3. Four American Sign Language shows will take place on January 25, January 26, February 15 and February 16. Tickets to C.S. Lewis's 'The Horse and His Boy' are available now at https://motb.me/horseandhisboy or visit museumofthebible.org, and for a limited time, audiences can use the code OPENING to save 15% off their ticket purchase.

They are challenging audience members to partake in their 12 Verse Challenge to sponsor a verse of the Bible being translated each month this year.
"We are so excited to be sponsoring 'The Horse and His Boy' at the Museum of the Bible," said Blake Silverstrom, Vice President of illumiNations Twelve Verse Challenge. "It's our mission to bring the Bible to every language and every people and we believe C.S. Lewis's work is the perfect opportunity to present our challenge.

They soon learn, however, that such a mission could only succeed with help from Aslan, the great lion himself!
