Show summary:

A treasured Disney classic lights up the New York Broadway stage in grand exuberant fashion. This dynamic stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 animated Disney favourite tells the story of Simba, a young lion cub who is one day destined to become King of the Pride Lands. In an attempt to prevent Simba from replacing him as heir to the throne, his jealous Uncle Scar devises a cunning plan that will force Simba to flee the kingdom forever. After running away, he is taken in by eccentric meerkat and warthog duo Timon and Pumbaa, who live life with a “no worries” attitude and soon become his best friends. With the carefree pair on his side, and the news that his pride is in trouble, will Simba have the courage to return to his homeland and claim his rightful place as King?
