OMAHA THEATRE TRIP

Tony Winner—The Lion King 

Lifelong Learners head to Omaha for a memorable Sunday to see an Orpheum Theatre Broadway series hit, the Disney Theatrical Production’s “The Lion King.” The musical is based on the Disney animated film of the same name, with music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice. Directed by Julie Taymor, who also created the masks, animal costumes, puppets and choreography, the musical was an instant success since its official New York premier on November 13, 1997. “The Lion King” has been seen world-wide by over 150 million people, has become the highest grossing show of all-time at $1.8 billion dollars, and is currently the second longest-running show in Broadway history. In 1998, this masterpiece won seven Tony’s, including “Best Musical.” 

“The Lion King” is the story of a young lion prince living in the African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, Simba adores his kingly father, Mufasa, but he shirks his responsibility as a prince. An unthinkable tragedy occurs. Scar, the evil, jealous uncle kills Mufasa. Prince Simba ignores his responsibility and flees the Pride Lands. Eventually Simba returns to fulfill his destiny as the future king. “The Lion King” is a beautiful story of love and redemption that no one should miss. Combine all of this brilliance with Sir Elton’s “Circle of Life,” “I’ve Just Got To Be King,” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” the African animals, puppets, Scar’s hyenas and the dancing plants, you know why it is still running. This is Broadway magic at its finest.
