***Run has been extended to 18th April***

Disney’s landmark musical, THE LION KING, is returning to the Edinburgh Playhouse in December 2019 for a limited run!

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti to the evocative rhythms of Africa, The Lion King tells the story of Simba’s epic journey to fulfil his destiny as King of the Pridelands.

Director Julie Taymor uses breathtaking theatrical magic to bring Disney’s original animated feature to life in a production which has thrilled over 95 million people around the world.

With a cast of more than 50 actors, singers and dancers, the story of THE LION KING is miraculously brought to life 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. The stunning simplicity of the production is the work of a team of designers which drew on diverse cultural influences to recreate the rich colours and vast expanses of the African savanna in this daring and inspiring reinvention of one of the most successful animated films of all time.
