Owner description: 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

We were a party of three, two adults and a child and went to the matinee showing. We booked tickets in the stalls are were just three rows from the front.

The show was amazing the costumes were fantastic, with excellent choreography and acting too.

The adds ons (ie the food, drink and gifts) were expensive, however this is part of the deal with all the theatres and if you are only going once, then you dont really mind.

Overall an excellent show. Dont miss it!!

“Amazing show!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Right from the start when all the 'animals' came on stage the children were captivated. All the performers were excellent - just one gripe - the boy who played young Simba for this performance didn't have a very good singing voice which was disappointing as 'I just can't wait to be king' is one of my favourite numbers from the show. Would definitely recommend going to see it, we all loved it.

“Great for Kids”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

What can I say it's Disney, great show fantastic songs from the film. The costumes and make-up were fab!

The acting and the way that everything was put together shows that they have rehearsed over and over again.
