It’s the circle of life, and Simba has been named the heir to the throne of the Pride Lands, much to the chagrin of Scar, King Mufasa’s jealous younger brother. So Scar hatches a plan to manipulate the young prince and his playmate Nala so that he can inherit the throne before Simba comes of age. Despite his caretaker Zazu’s protests, Simba ventures outside of his father’s realm, finding himself trapped in a wildebeest stampede of Scar’s making. While Mufasa saves his son’s life, he can’t save his own, as Scar tosses him off the cliff into the mass of sprinting animals. Simba retreats, blaming himself for his father’s death and meets the comedy kings of the jungle, Timon and Pumbaa. While he plans to stay with them, the soothsayer Rafiki knows the young prince’s destiny and is determined to bring him back where he belongs.

This classic story of family will speak to anyone who has ever been a parent or a child, and the soaring score and exquisite puppetry will have audiences of all ages feeling the love. Inspired by the Oscar-winning 1994 Disney film, the musical was brilliantly crafted for the stage by visionary director Julie Taymor and features hundreds of expertly-crafted puppets and masks to bring the world of Pride Rock to brilliant life. And all your favorite Elton John and Tim Rice songs from the film — including Oscar-winning song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?”, “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” and “Hakuna Matata” — are there, along with additional music from by Lebo M, Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin, Taymor, and Hans Zimmer. This classic tale of love and redemption will definitely have you feeling the love.
