See Disney's The Lion King at the Edinburgh Playhouse

The award-winning musical first premiered in the West End in 1999. Two decades on, it has become a staple show of London's offering, and is embarking on its second UK tour from September 2019. The Lion King is based upon the children's animation released in 1994 by Disney. It remains close to the film, featuring the same characters, central storyline and outstanding soundtrack. Sir Elton John and Tim Rice collaborated to provide some of the most memorable songs of any Disney film, such as 'Circle of Life', 'I Just Can't Wait to be King', 'Hakuna Matata'. The musical also features additional tracks and subplots to keep audiences surprised. The production has secured several Tony Awards, including 'Best Musical', 'Best Costume Design' and 'Best Choreography'. One of the most impressive characteristics of the show is the innovative way animals are portrayed on stage. The Lion King broke barriers when it comes to puppetry and creations, where the four years invested in making them lead to a new way of experiencing theatre. Today, The Lion King has been seen around the world by over 85 million people, who no doubt thoroughly enjoyed themselves given the consistent rave reviews. With only its second ever UK and Ireland tour, tickets will likely fly so make sure you get your lion's share!

About

In 1929 the Edinburgh Playhouse first opened as a super-cinema, modelled after the Roxy from New York. Since then, the theatre has expanded to welcome all mediums of entertainment, regularly hosting a wide variety of artists and shows. With respect to capacity, the Playhouse is considered the largest working theatre in the UK. The venue is managed by the Ambassadors Theatre Group, known for producing the best West End shows across the UK. While the Playhouse it primarily known for receiving major touring musicals, such as Wicked, Matilda, Mamma Mia, Mary Poppins and Motown the Musical, the theatre is also frequented by comedians and musicians. The likes of Greg Davies and Billy Connolly have entertained their loyal followings at the Playhouse, where Connolly describes the venue as having the ‘best stage in Scotland’, and legendary bands and artists such as Bob Dylan, Metallica and The Who have all rocked out the ornate theatre. In its long standing history in the community, the Edinburgh Playhouse has become an emblem of culture. The Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival both use its grand stage and large seating capacity during the summer. The theatre also reaches out to the local youth, delivering various workshops and projects to encourage adolescents and young adults to get involved, and perhaps even star on stage at a leading production.
