Performance Academy: Disney’s The Lion King Kids

mar 22 - mar 23, 2019

Disney’s The Lion King Kids is a 35-minute version of the popular stage and film musical, adapted to suit young voices. The African savanna comes to life on stage with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle…and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.

During Spring Break week, 40 students representing 21 elementary and middle schools, are rehearsing 9:00 AM-4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. By the end of the week, they will have learned their lines, dances, songs, and blocking for the featured production, Disney’s The Lion King Kids. They will then have two shows, 5:00 PM, Friday, Mar. 22, and 1:00 PM, Saturday, Mar. 23, that are open to the public.

The Playhouse Performance Academy is young people creating shows, under the direction of professional artistic staff, and complete with set pieces, costumes, and props, to be seen by families. Open to students in grades 3-8, Spring Break Performance Academy provides an opportunity for young people to work on performance skills.
