The Lion King musical is the internationally-acclaimed landmark musical event, based on the Disney classic beloved by many, which is about to make its Southeast Asian premiere in Singapore at the new Marina Bay Sands Theatre this March. Seen by over 51 million people around the world, this award-winning Broadway musical has broken box-office records and wowed audiences around the world, delighting both young and the young-at-heart alike.
The Lion King has won six Tony Awards in 1998, for Best Musical, Best Director of a Musical, Best Choreography, Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design and Best Lighting Design, and has won over 70 major international theatre awards.
Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains to the evocative rhythms of Africa, and brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney’s beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience. The stage explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music including Elton John and Tim Rice’s Academy Award-winning ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba — the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pride Lands.
The Lion King follows the adventures of a lion cub, Simba, who is driven into exile after his father, Mufasa the King, who was brutally murdered by his heinous brother. The brother, Scar, becomes King and terrorises the lands into the despair. Meanwhile, Simba escapes into the jungle, where he befriends Timon, a wisecracking meercat, and Pumbaa, a big-hearted warthog.
As Simba grows from wide-eyed cub into a strong young lion, he finds himself struggling with the responsibilities of manhood and his future role and birthright as King. Eventually, he returns to overthrow his wicked uncle, Scar, and reclaims the kingdom, restoring peace and joy to the Pride Lands and all its inhabitants.
11-year-old Singaporean, Nicholas Papayoanou, will join the international cast of the award-winning musical, making him the first Singaporean to be cast in a production of this calibre. Nicholas’ debut will be at the Sands Theater on Saturday, 23 April at the 2pm matinee, cast in the role of “Young Simba”.
