Julie Taymor’s spectacular adaptation of Disney’s award-winning film uses masks and puppetry to create pure theatrical magic.

Why Watch The Lion King

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi award-winning musical will redefine your expectations of theatre.

Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience that explodes with glorious colors, stunning effects, and enchanting music.

At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

The Story

The Lion King tells the story of a young lion, Simba, and his coming of age. Growing up as the jungle prince, Simba idolized his father Mufasa - one of the greatest rulers the African Pride Lands has ever seen - and is preparing to be next in line. However, a family tragedy causes Simba to flee from his kingdom and go into exile instead.

Years later, Simba realizes the truth and finally makes his way home. Follow Simba’s journey as he returns home to fulfill his true destiny as the true King of the Pride Lands.

It’s a little misterious and we were afraid that no one would show up with the tickets. But at the end everything was ok.
