    About the Show
    Disney’s The Lion King has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world. The African Savannah comes to life onstage with Simba, Rafiki, and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle…and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.

    Disney’s The Lion King, Jr. centers around a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his king father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable family tragedy occurs, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when the weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now-ravaged Pride Linds come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king.

    Based on the smash hit 1994 Disney animated film, Disney’s The Lion King, Jr. is a simple, yet timeless story of love and redemption that is guarantee to inspire and warm the hearts of all theatergoers.
