'Oh we just can't wait to see the King!' - Disney's epic stage show of The Lion King is heading to Auckland this year!

The show will take place at Spark Arena from June 24th. The venue will be transformed into a more theatrical setting for the run of the show.

“We at Disney Theatrical, and our partner Michael Cassel, are delighted that the world-renowned stage production The Lion King will finally have its New Zealand premiere this winter,” a Disney spokesperson said. “I cannot wait for Kiwi audiences to experience it.”

“To be able to share the joy of Julie Taymor’s spectacular production with audiences once again after such a difficult year for our arts and entertainment industry is a wonderful feeling. To do so in an entirely new country is beyond exciting. Auckland audiences can look forward to a truly authentic Broadway experience, delivered by our incredible international cast.”
