About Disney's 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 colours, 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.

    Thoroughly enjoyable highly recommended

    This was an amazing show! The opening was excellent, and almost balletic. I loved the way they'd translated it from film to stage. There were a few changes - but nothing that took away from the production. Some of the ways that they changed it were really interesting and imaginative. I was worried about my seat - because I'd not been to the theatre in about 20 years - but I needn't have worried - the view was fantastic. I think it would be pretty much anywhere in the theatre. Finally all the actors/dancers were amazing, however in my opinion there were certain characters who were SUPERBLY cast. Soooo funny, my particular favourites were Timon, Pumba and Zazu. Anyway - It's amazing and I'd love to see it again.
