The Lyceum Theatre in London is the current venue for the smash hit west end musical The Lion King.

The Lion King, is an epic stage show at the Lyceum Theatre in London with a cast of over 40 actors, singers and dancers, and tells the story of of young Simba's epic adventures as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and becoming king.

Disney's musical version of The Lion King has become a worldwide hit and is miraculously brought to life on the West End stage using masks, puppets and striking costumes.The stunning simplicity of The Lion King is the work of a team of designers who draw on diverse cultural influences to recreate the rich colours and vast expanses of the African savanna in this daring and inspiring theatrical reinvention of one of the most successful animated films of all time.

The animals in the show are created using giant hollow puppets and costumes that effectively evoke all of the characters and bring them to life.

The Lion King has a sweeping musical score from Sir Elton John and tribal-flavoured incidental music and unique lighting, creating visually stunning effects, with twenty-five species of animal, bird, fish and insect vividly represented. The show also incorporates all the space in the theatre it has available, using the vast stalls section of the Lyceum Theatre to draw theatregoers into the show which has proved to be a winning formula, with The Lion King having played to an audience of over 40 million people worldwide.
