- Get out of London's hectic bustle and into the African wilderness
- Watch the coming-of-age Disney story come to life in front of your amazed eyes, using puppetry and theatrical magic
- Sing along to the Oscar-winning score, as you realize that Yes! You can feel the love tonight!
Step from London's West End into the African Savannah, with this long-running theatrical phenomenon, telling the story of Simba – the lion who should be king.
If all you know of The Lion King is what you remember from the Disney cartoon, you're in for a treat: this family-friendly West End production of The Lion King is an utterly absorbing theatrical experience.
Each performance sees 114 singers, dancers, puppeteers and technicians bring to life the story of prince Simba struggling to take his place at the head of the pride. (In case you didn't know, his uncle Scar is a real jerk).
This unique musical experience will transport children of all ages (up to 90+) into the African wilderness, with life-sized puppet creations (including five-meter tall giraffes!) intricate choreography and dazzling lights. Featuring an irresistible musical score by Elton John, with lyrics by Tim Rice (including the Oscar-winning Can You feel The Love Tonight?), this production is truly a sensorial feast.
The puppetry alone is enough to delight the kids and leave parents shaking their heads wondering "how did they do that?".
The Lion King has been in London's West End for more than twenty years, and is now as much a part of a London experience as Big Ben or Buckingham Palace.
If you're not filled with life-affirming joy on the way out of the theater, feel your wrist to make sure you still have a pulse.
