The King Returns! The Lion King Opens in Houston

It’s time to take your place in the circle of life. The national tour of The Lion King opens in Houston on July 10. The Disney musical will play Sarofim Hall at the Hobby Centerthrough August 12.

A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning animated film, The Lion King is the story of Simba, a young lion prince born into the royal family, who idolizes his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Simba starts anew, but eventually, the weight of responsibility comes to find the adult prince, and Simba must take on a formidable enemy and fulfill his destiny to be king. The score by Elton John and Tim Rice features the songs “The Circle of Life” and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight.”

The show stars Jelani Remy as Simba, J. Anthony Crane as Scar, Dionne Randolph as Mufasa, Buyi Zama as Rafiki, Nokubonga Khuzwayo as Nala, Mark David Kaplan as Zazu, Ben Lipitz as Pumbaa and Nick Cordileone as Timon. The production is directed by Tony winner Julie Taymor.
