Now in its 15th triumphant year at the Lyceum Theatre, Disney's animated blockbuster The Lion King is now one of the most successful West-End stage shows of all time. The much loved songs and characters are all back in this visually stunning stage experience. With a cast of over 40 actors, singers, and dancers, the story of The Lion King is miraculously brought to life in London's West End using masks, puppets and striking costumes to tell the story of young Simba's epic adventures as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and becoming king.

Simple yet beautiful is very much the key to the show's incredible design. The masks and puppetry only enhance, rather than detract from the performers own portrayal of African wildlife. The human element is purposefully featured and offers a whole new perspective on this classic story.

The stunning aesthetic of The Lion King is the work of a team of designers who draw on diverse cultural influences to recreate the rich colours and vast expanses of the savannah, resulting in a daring and inspiring reinvention.

Directed and designed by Tony Award winner Julie Taymor, THE LION KING brings new life to Disney's crowd pleasing story of a young prince's adventure-filled journey to adulthood - and the throne.
