One of the most popular musicals of all time has just extended its booking period in the capital, giving even more people the chance to see this truly spectacular production.
Disney's The Lion King has been running at the Lyceum Theatre since October 1999, meaning it is now just a few months away from celebrating its 15th birthday – and there could be many more to come yet.
Based on the iconic movie of the same name, the musical tells the story of Simba, the lion prince, who is banished from his pride after he is blamed for the death of his father, King Mufasa.
Growing up in exile, the young lion befriends a number of interesting characters, such as the comedic duo of Timon the meerkat and Pumba the warthog, before returning to his homeland to avenge his father by defeating his uncle Scar and taking his rightful place as king.
Featuring music from Elton John and Tim Rice, both the film and the stage show of the Lion King have provided some of the most popular and well-known Disney tunes of all time, with songs such as The Circle of Life, Hakuna Matata and I Just Can't Wait to be King among the best of these.
With spectacular costumes, amazing sets and a gripping story, the West End production of the Lion King has left millions of viewers awe-struck during its run at the Lyceum Theatre, so if you haven't seen it yet then you really don't know what you're missing.
Fortunately, there will be plenty of opportunities to catch a performance of the show, which will be sticking around at the famous venue until at least March 29th next year.
The Lyceum Theatre is located on Wellington Street, which is just a stone's throw from key landmarks such as Covent Garden, the Strand and many top London hotels.
