Based on the The Lion King Disney movie, this beloved musical follows young lion cub Simba, a prince and heir to Pride Rock, the land of his father, Mufasa. As Simba begins to learn what it means to be a King and to lead his people, Mufasa’s duplicitous brother, Scar, plots to take over the Pridelands. With the help of a pack of hyenas, Simba must face the world alone, discovering a new way of life in the jungle with new friends Timon and Pumbaa.
The Lion King musical is a fun-filled stage spectacular. It features music by Elton John and Tim Rice, incorporating fantastic puppetry to bring the animal kingdom to life. See gazelles move gracefully across the stage, an elephant take to the theatre aisles and birds fly across the auditorium!
