May 20th, the African Savannah will come to life on stage at the Capitol Theatre. Be prepared to be wowed as you are transported, through song and dance, from Pride Rock to the jungle and back again. The award-winning Broadway musical, The Lion King, features music from the original 1994 movie soundtrack by Elton John and Tim Rice, as well as songs by South African musician, Lebo M. The Lion King Jr., recently released by Disney, is an adaptation of this much loved production of an inspiring pan-African coming-of-age tale.
Thirty-six performers, ranging in age from 9 to 15, have been working since October under the guidance of local dance instructor Shaenna Young, musical director Kathleen Kneudorf, and director Marcelo Goncalves to bring this production to the Nelson community.
