Theatre Arts and Dance Alliance is proud to present its Annual Summer Musical, Disney’s “The Lion King, Jr.” The 90 – minute musical based on the Broadway production directed by Julie Taymor and the 1994 Disney film. This production features over 40 of our amazing students!
“The Lion King, Jr.” tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba played by Josiah Randolph 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, including spunky lioness Nala played by Catherine Kraack, charismatic meerkat Timon played by Peyton Finch, and lovable warthog Pumba played by Mia Scaringe. 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 played by Thomas Ashley. The Lion King, Jr. features classic songs from the 1994 film, such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.
