Disney presents a musical that brings the much-loved 1994 animated film to life to breath-taking effects, spirit and power, inviting you to explore the African Serengeti and join the wide eyed cub Simba on the adventure of a lifetime as he grows up and accepts his destiny as the King of the Pride Lands. In addition to the beloved songs penned by Sir Elton John and Tim Rice (such as the soaring 'Circle of Life') this phenomenal adaptation has new original songs and explodes with joyous, captivating music that soundtrack the rich mythology and moving drama expertly.
Since opening on Broadway in 1997, The Lion King has smashed records, evolving into the highest grossing show, playing to date, 6,700 performances and mounting new ones worldwide. The success is well deserved as the musical is a visually stunning affair, creating a realistic and thrilling landscape, with actors dressed as the wild animals and encompassing their characters in a spectacular, goose bump-giving performance that keeps audiences coming back time and again.
Whether you want to see the spectacle for yourself for the first time, or are a returning visitor, you can be sure that this is a musical that the whole family can enjoy!
To the rejoicing of all the animals of the savannah, a new prince is born, to just King Mufasa and his wife. The cub grows up into a lively youngster whose best friends are the sarcastic hornbill Zazu and the beautiful and feisty lioness Nyla. Together they play and discover their homeland in joy, until one day King Mufasa is tragically killed and Simba is replaced by his evil Uncle Scar, and retreats to the jungle to grow up with the hilarious meerkat Timon and the big-hearted wildebeest Pumba. But he can't turn his back on the kingdom forever, and now he must act and stop Scar from destroying the Pride. Join Simba as he takes the journey to his destiny, learning about life, and love, along the way!
If you combine all of the productions of the show world wide together, The Lion King has been running for 90 years!
