In this adaptation of the beloved Disney animated film, young actors bring the story of Simba and his friends to life with the aid of specially-constructed puppets. The young and carefree lion cub faces serious consequences that force him to flee his kingdom, leaving his cruel uncle Scar to rule in his place. With the help of his new friends Timon and Pumbaa, Simba learns the joys of “Hakuna Matata,” or “no worries,” until his past catches up with him. Will responsibility and honor win out? Discover the answer for yourself as you sing along to the classic songs, “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” We recommend this musical for ages 4 and older.
