The Lion King

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi-award winning musical will redefine your expectations of theatre. Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience 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. **Please note:** there is a wall present between Stalls seats Z17-23 and ZA15-23  Please arrive 60-90 minutes prior to the event start time to aid with the safe movement of customers around the venue. __Assisted performances__ Relaxed: Sunday 30 June 2024 at 1.30pm
