One of the most anticipated musicals is finally making its way to Vancouver – Broadway Across Canada (BAC) proudly presents The Lion King! From June 18 through July 12, this must-see nationally touring musical is welcoming all to experience the ‘Circle of Life’ along with many other unforgettable Elton John and Tim Rice favourites. This spectacular live and on-stage adaptation from one of Disney’s most treasured and Academy Award-winning films is one show that can’t be missed. Come and hear the pounding of tribal drumbeats, witness the magic of the African safari coming to life, and join Simba on his adventure of friendship, family, redemption, and love.

From the BAC website:

Experience the phenomenon. The most eagerly awaited stage production ever will leap onto the stage. Visually stunning, technically astounding and with a musical score like none other you’ve ever heard. Giraffes strut, birds swoop, gazelles leap. The entire savannah comes to life and as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly emerges from the mist. See the Tony® Award-winning Broadway sensation thatNewsweek calls “a landmark event in entertainment.” The New York Times says, “There is simply nothing else like it.”
