Default Narnia Play Performances

So there isn't really a subforum for "Other adaptions of Narnia" so I decided this fit better here than anywhere else.

My church has a (semi-)thriving drama group and we have performed The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe multiple times. (I was Susan the first time and Mrs. Beaver the second. I'm still incredibly proud of this.) We've had some interesting experiences with the script adaptions, finding the rights and things like that. I do often see schools doing LWW, it's surprisingly easy to adapt into a play. I was wondering if anyone else had any experiences with dramatic productions of Narnia.

This came to mind because this summer we're taking on a bigger challenge: We're doing Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Our very own Dame of Gondor is going to be Lucy. (My other siblings and I are going to be various other characters, the cast is huge and we'll be doing a bit of doubling. (Most notably my youngest sister will be the chief duffer and Twilight and I will, appropriately, be Duffers.) This is possible because there is a very cool lady in New Zealand writing faithful adaptions of the books in coordination with the C.S. Lewis estate. I was also wondering if any of you have ever heard of her work. According to the script I have with me, her name is Erina Caradus. I can testify her adaption of Dawn Treader is exceptional, probably the best adaption we've worked with of any book we've performed as a play.
