ABOUT THE CAMP
Campers ages 5 - 14 experienced the challenge of putting on an entire musical in just two weeks! Camp days included staging, choreography, music, a snack, and loads of fun! Camp tuition included costumes, hours of instruction, snack each day, a DVD of the show, and a camp T-shirt.
A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, Disney’s The Lion King Jr. is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa (while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires). When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind.
Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy and fulfill his destiny to be king. A vibrant and exciting tale, Disney’s The Lion King Jr. is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss.
