Disney's The Lion King, a truly spectacular musical.
Now in its 15th hit year and people are still flocking to see it. It is suitable for all ages, and is a particular favourite for younger children as well as families and indeed the under-lying love story appeals to all.
Based on the animated film of the same name, it is truly a wonderful story. Disney have weaved their magic and indeed it is arguably better than the film.
The set designs and costumes are brilliant and use African influences as opposed to foam heads and costumes deployed at Disney parades. In fact, the puppetry used by some characters is an art form in itself. The lighting and staging really do invoke the atmosphere of the African Savannah. The music is what sets it apart from other less successful shows; they have fused many different influences from African tribal music through to power ballads and magical love songs penned by Elton John and Tim Rice.
The underlying morality tale of good triumphing over evil is typical Disney fare, but also the concept of 'The Circle of Life' is fantastic. All in all it is a fabulous show, so sit back and enjoy.

- Although The Lion King is a firm family favourite, the theatre recommends that it is not suitable for children under 5, as the show might be too lengthy. They do strictly enforce their policy that children under the age of 3 will not be admitted.
- The best place to sit is in the stalls. There is a good incline so children (and any shorter members of the population) would get a better view here than at most theatres. Not wanting to give the game away, but from here you'll also see some wonderful characters walk through the aisles.
- Make sure you arrive in plenty of time. The show is so popular, that the front of house is always very busy! If you are collecting your tickets on the night, the Box Office entrance is adjacent to the main Lyceum doors.
- Please note that you must be seated 5 minutes prior to the performance start time (2.25pm for matinees and 7.25pm for evenings). This is essential, to avoid missing the start of the performance.

"Wow! The opening scene is truly breath-taking. I took my 6 year old sister and she sat entranced throughout the whole thing. The staging and costumes are so clever."
"Even I had to admit to the kaleidoscopic visual brilliance of Julie Taymor's production; and in that, I suspect, lies the ultimate source of the show's success."
"Taymor's theatrical fireworks, backed up by Donald Holder's oft-unsung, emotive lighting, are more than draw enough. 'The Lion King' is a show that demands to be seen."
