The Mane Event

Usually placing a cheetah, rhinoceros, two elephants, three zebras, fifteen gazelles and fifty-two wildebeest on stage would be a terrible idea. You know the saying ‘Never work with animals or children’. But that saying was invented before The Lion King.

The Lion King is one of the most iconic musicals of the modern era. Renowned for its chart-topping music and the incredibly clever way animal puppets are brought to life on stage causing audiences to forget they are watching humans, The Lion King has returned to Melbourne’s Regent Theatre.

This Tony Award-winning musical is thrilling audiences across the world with nine concurrent productions running from Madrid to Broadway – where it is the fourth longest running show in Broadway’s history. The crowd-pleasing show is experiencing similar demand in Australia with Australian ticket sales alone surpassing 1.1 million.

Featuring a cast sourced from 13 different countries, this is a musical not to miss as the traditional Lion King story is interwoven with traditional African music and a set design that you need to see to believe!
