 Disney’s “The Lion King KIDS” will be presented at Lincoln Crossing Elementary for two public shows March 22.

The 30-minute musical, designed for middle-school aged performers, is based on the Broadway production and the 1994 Disney film.

“The Lion King KIDS” tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar.

Songs include “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” 

Admission is $2 at the door.
