You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING. Brilliantly re-imagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production 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. 'There is simply nothing else like it.' The New York Times

I received tickets as a birthday present. After seeing many of the reviews and talking to people I was looking forward to a good show However I was slightly disappointed with what I saw. I felt that some of the songs weren't performed very well...More

What a wonderful show, combining some great tunes with dance, puppetry and a beautiful set. A wonderful introduction to theatre for kids as well. Well worth it.

FUN show. Actors did a great job. Seating was comfortable and it was everything we expected. Even with mishap at the end of the play. Actors improvised and made it a little more special

Brilliant! I didn't even want to see this but was assured it wouldn't be 'just for kids' like I thought. I was pleasantly surprised at how great it was. Really well designed and thought out, and of course superbly acted. I recommend this or everyone,...More

the view was restricted a little because of safety rail but we could still see fine. Our seats were balcony seats so the extra height helped with the view.
