The Lion King musicalWith a cast of over 40 actors, singers and dancers, the story of Disney’s THE LION KING is brought to life using masks, puppets and striking costumes.  It tells the story of young Simba the lion cub’s adventures as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and becoming king.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi award-winning musical is a unique theatrical experience that you will remember forever.

Owen Chaponda (Back to the Future; The Color Purple) and Merryl Ansah (Heathers) will play the roles of Simba and Nala, returning to the show after first appearing as ensemble members..

Also joining the cast will be Rhiane Drummond as Shenzi, Jorell Coiffic-Kamall as Banzai, alongside new ensemble cast members: Gibsa Bah, Shaquille Brush, Stedroy Cabey, Nikki Cheung, Kat Collings, Marlee Jay, Tomas Larraguivel, Gennaro Maffettone, Lanya Matthews, Daniel Mejia, Sipho Mlombile, Ntethelelo Nhlapo, Dillan Hope Suttle and Francesca Thompson.

Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved animated film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music.   At its heart is the powerful story of Simba ­and his epic adventure to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

 Now ranked as one of the longest-running musicals in West End history and confirmed as one of London’s most popular attractions, the show is truly an unmissable London landmark.
