ABOUT Disney's The Lion King

The Lion King is Disney’s spectacular and multi award-winning musical based on the hit  animated film, now playing at the Lyceum Theatre in London.

Directed by the Tony award-winning Julie Taymor (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Disney’s The Lion King is one of the most imaginative and beautiful musicals to ever be staged.

A huge hit around the world, the show is a spectacular visual feast that transports audiences young and old into the gloriously colourful world of the Serengeti Plains of Africa.

Using magical puppetry, costumes and sets, a dazzling world is evoked as the powerful story of Simba the lion is told, as he embarks on an epic adventure from wide-eyed cub to fulfil his destiny as the King of the Pridelands.

Featuring Oscar winning music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, The Lion King promises an extraordinary, magical trip to the theatre.

Disney’s The Lion King is booking until 16 February 2020 at the Lyceum Theatre, London.


Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney’s multi award-winning musical will redefine your expectations of theatre.

At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba – the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
