Last week our students went to the Lyceum Theatre near Covent Garden to see ‘The Lion King’ as part of our Social Programme – Sara, our coffee bar monitor, was one of them! And below she shares her experience with you!
The Lion King… breathtaking, this is the word I would use to describe this musical. Since I was a child The Lion King has been my favourite Disney movie and being able to watch it live in a beautiful theatre such as the Lyceum was an amazing experience.
The scenic design of the set and the costumes were incredibly impressive, not to mention the top-notch acting and singing. However the true masterpiece was the child who played the role of young Simba, there are no words to describe his extraordinary talent.
I really recommend watching this musical, as even though I am not a musical person myself I really enjoyed it and it’s not one you want to miss. Ps be prepared to be misty-eyed and maybe shed a few tears (as I did) when Mufasa dies.
