But the young lion manages to escape and is rescued by Timon and Pumbaa, a meercat and warthog who teach Simba their No Worries philosophy.

Every member of the audience in the theatre felt like they were part of the Lion King, from the actors in the aisles to the familiar and well known story it encapsulates. Great from start to finish, no matter what age.
The performances are great, the singing is first class, the dance routines are spectacular and there is a great African feel about the whole show. The scenery is impressive the myriad costumes are inventive and colourful and combine with the great puppetry. The whole show is beautifully lit with vibrant colour and subtle effects. I loved the way the whole space was at times filled with flying birds or clouds or jungle vegetation. A total feast for the eyes. Timon and Pumbaa add wonderful comic relief and it all adds up to excellent family entertainment. My 11 year old son thought that the whole thing was brilliant. It is easy to see why it is still packing the theatre after 15 years.
My daughter and I both thought it was brilliant. It still has its charm… We sat in the stalls under the dress circle….I would recommend people that have children if they can sit by the aisle/stalls/near to the front to enjoy the characters that come into the crowd etc
