Based on the much-loved animated classic, The Lion King Jr. follows young Simba on his coming of age journey from frisky cub to leader of the Pridelands. This 80-minute, family-friendly musical features hits including “Circle of Life,” “Hakuna Matada,” and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight.” Audiences of all ages will enjoy this funny and touching expedition through the jungle inhabited by hilarious hyenas (Banzai and Shenzi), wily warthogs (Pumbaa) and the always rattled and righteous Zazu.
“This group of young artists excels at comedy and storytelling. We knew this piece would allow us to highlight their gifts as performers. Our version of this tale is rendered with a great amount of imagination and joy,” commented Ian Mairs, director for the show. “There is less of a focus on pageantry and more on the human tale which exists at the heart of the story.”
