Disney’s The Lion King has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world, and now the African savannah comes to life onstage with Simba the young lion as he journeys from Pride Rock to the jungle, and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.

Disney’s The Lion King Jr. tells the story of a curious lion cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his future destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters including the mysterious mandrill Rafiki, his spunky lioness pal Nala, the charismatic meerkat Timon, and the loveably flatulent warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pride lands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar.

Disney’s The Lion King Jr. features the classic Elton John and Tim Rice songs from the 1994 Disney film such as “Hakuna Matata”, “Circle of Life”, “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” and the Academy Award ® – winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” as well as several of the additional songs penned for the Broadway musical production.

Leapin’ Lizards! The irrepressible comic strip heroine takes center stage in one of the world’s best-loved musicals.

Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards – including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the orphanage, Annie escapes into the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Annie is the perfect family-friendly musical – just in time for the holidays.

Musical, Rated G
