Show Information


THE LION KING is committed to creating a friendly and inclusive audience experience. 

Relaxed performances are designed to provide an opportunity for people with autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs who might prefer a more relaxed environment.

Any patrons who feel this performance might suit their specific needs, or the needs of their family members or companions, are warmly encouraged to attend.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi award-winning musical is a unique theatrical experience that you will remember forever.

Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved animated film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production.

At its heart is the powerful story of Simba and his epic adventure to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
