The Lion King is a unique theatrical telling of Disney's masterpiece film by the same title. Composed of stunning costume design and impeccable choreography by Tony Award-winning Garth Fagan, The Lion King transports its audience to Pride Rock, following Simba's journey from a reckless cub to a lion who has forgotten his path as the true king.

The musical renders its own live performances of the sensational numbers of the film, crafted by legends Elton John and Tim Rice, along with the film's score composed by Hans Zimmer. Fans of the film can sing along to iconic songs, like "Circle of Life", "Hakuna Matata", and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?".
