Most everyone knows the Walt Disney classic The Lion King but only a few in comparison have experienced this musical live on the stage. Like with so many other Broadway classics, we are fortunate to have them coming for a limited return engagement at Keller Auditorium on August 10th thru September 4th. If you have not been lucky enough to see this show in the past, make sure you mark your calendar for at least one performance. It is stunning!

This awesome spectacle has been a staple for theater lovers for years and it is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. The Lion King has grossed over a billion dollars and has played in over 70 different cities. It is now entering it’s 19th year of entertaining audiences and it is one of the most brilliant musicals of our time.

From the ground breaking musical score to the costumes, The Lion King is one of the most powerful productions you are ever likely to see. Top notch production values makes it one of the biggest award winners in it’s genre. Nobody can see The Lion King without wanting to go back, so I would suggest that you show up early in the series and leave time to book coming back to see it again.
