Disney’s The Lion King has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world and now, for the first time ever, we have the opportunity to produce this one-of-a-kind musical at the Academy! The African savannah will come to life on our stage with Simba, Nala, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle… and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale. With gorgeous animal puppets and costumes designed by professional puppeteer, Donna Bourgeault, this show will be visually spectacular. We will also be incorporating live drumming into the production, so that students will have a chance to learn drum rhythms and techniques, as well as singing, dancing, and acting an epic character! This show truly has it all – don’t miss the chance to sing “Hakuna Matata,” “The Circle of Life,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” “I Just Can’t Wait to be King,” and many more in this incredible show!
The best part of this workshop is the chance to perform our production live onstage at Perth’s Stewart Park Festival, with an average annual attendance of over 20,000 people! Our cast members will be true stars, onstage beside internationally renowned performers.
