A spectacle you’ll never forget

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 and the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

There’s epic… and then there’s THE LION KING

But as we’re talking of epic spectacular effects, THE LION KING pulls out all the stops to thrill its audiences, using more than 232 puppets and 350 costumes in every performance. Amazingly, it requires 50 cast members plus an additional 100 people backstage to make each performance happen.


Don’t mess with a lioness

So far, so incredible. But if you want to contemplate the dedication that brought THE LION KING to the stage, how about the fact that director Julie Taymor and her team spent 37,000 hours building the original masks and puppets? This dedication paid off to a degree which is hard to calculate, and the production has now received over 70 major theatre awards internationally, so don’t miss out.
