The Glendale Academy Drama Department is proud to present their 2018 Spring Musical, Disney’s “The Lion King, Jr.” The 60-minute musical, designed for young performers, is based on the award winning Broadway production directed by Julie Taymor and the 1994 Disney film. This production features over 40 of our amazing students and alumni.

Disney’s “The Lion King, Jr.” has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world. It tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters, including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film, such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.
