The Lion King Junior 23rd-28th June

(Posted on 05/03/15)

Following our success last year with “Honk!”, our first junior musical (years 7-9 only), we are proud to announce that the next production for our younger performers will be Disney’s The Lion King Junior from 23rd to 28th June 2015. Tickets will be available via the Box Office button, on the front page of our school website, from 10am on Monday 9th March.

Following successful auditions of over 130 students, a cast of 80 have been assembled and we start rehearsals next week for what is sure to be a very popular show.

The Lion King JR. tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colourful cast of characters including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.
