The Lion King has evolved over the years,
making the leap from popular Disney film to an equally successful stage musical. Its roots onstage began in 1997 at the Orpheum
Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota. From there it transitioned to the Broadway stage and holds the honor of being Broadway's
eighth longest running musical.
Take the whole family to the theater in Durham
where you will be treated to a incredible adventure that takes place within the animal kingdom. The story revolves around
the life of the young lion cub Simba, who loses his father at the hands of his evil Uncle Scar. Simba must do a lot of soul-searching
and self discovery to finally realize what his role is in the circle of life.
The Lion King has traveled around the world, performing at various international cities. This particular production takes
place at the Durham
Performing Arts Center. The facility opened its doors in 2008 and has been hosting numerous productions since. Join the
crowds and find your seat as the curtain opens on The Lion King.
