THE LION KING will play the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from Saturday 27th April 2013 as part of the show’s first tour of UK & Republic of Ireland. The legendary musical will visit Dublin for a two-month season, giving Irish audiences the opportunity to experience this global phenomenon.
Four years in the making, this truly international production brings together a cast of over 50 actors, singers and dancers, from 17 different countries, supported by a backstage team of over 100 people. THE LION KING will be the largest musical production ever to tour Ireland and the UK.
Disney’s THE LION KING is based on the beloved Academy award-winning animated film which was entrusted to Director and Co-Designer Julie Taymor to adapt the film for the stage. Taymor brought a vast array of disciplines to THE LION KING which draws upon her immeasurable experience of various theatrical styles and cultures to tell the compelling tale of Simba, the young lion cub, as he journeys through life and struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destined role of King.
