Year 8 Trip to the Lion King

Just one of the excellent reiews of the recent trip to the West End theatre production.

I found the performance of The Lion King quite emotional as all of the characters and ensembles were very enthusiastic and joyful. I found the show exciting and I found most of the characters hilarious – especially Rafiki. The musical felt extremely short because it was so good and I didn’t want it to end! Also, I loved the special effects on stage, for example when Rafiki sings the Reprise song entitled ‘He Lives in You’. It was special because they celebrate the life of Mufasa and remind Simba that he lives on inside of him. If I was asked to go and watch The Lion King again, I definitely would.  I would take my family to really enjoy the experience. The musical will make you cry with laughter and sadness. It is completely different to anything I have watched before. It is extremely powerful.  India Hughes 8CHS.
