family to see The Lion King in London’s West End this Christmas. The Disney’s
classic opened at the Lyceum Theatre on 19 October 1999 and keeps enchanting
audiences eight times a week 18 years later!
Set in the splendid Serengeti Plains, the multi
award-winning musical tells the epic story of Simba, the lion prince, and his
journey to become King of the Pridelands. Forced to face exile and regret, the
young lion will meet the hilarious Timon the meerkat and Pumbaa the warthog,
along with the lovely Nala. In their company, Simba will find the courage to
confront his evil uncle, Scar, and claim the throne of the Pridelands.
Directed by Julie Taymor, The Lion King is a
sensational fun for the whole family with its glorious staging, breath-taking
large-scale puppetry, spectacular colours and stunning effects. It’s a delight
for the eyes and the ears as well. The evocative score by Elton John and Tim
Rice includes unforgettable songs like “Circle of Life”, “I Just Can’t Wait to
be King”, “Hakuna Matata” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”. A theatre
classic not to be missed!
So enjoy the magic of The Lion King at the
Lyceum Theatre and check the availability for cheap tickets to see it now!
