It follows the story of Disney's The Lion King, but the action from the film is miraculously brought to life by using masks, puppets and striking costumes to tell the story of young Simba, the lion cub.
He experiences tragedy, friendship and love through an epic journey to fulfil his destiny as King of the Pridelands.
Then there is the breathtaking award-winning score of songs written by Elton John and Tim Rice, including Circle of Life, Can You Feel The Love Tonight and Hakuna Matata, to keep children and adults gripped throughout the show.
Animals like giraffes are miraculously brought to life using puppets
I saw the show in London and along with the story and music, the fantastic way that actors are able to transform themselves into animals through masks, puppets and similar tools is part of the attraction.
The stage becomes a wonder of colour. Vivid oranges, glorious blues and wild greens.
The Lion King, which has been a hit in London's West End for nearly 15 years, was the first musical directed by Julie Taymor, who is one of the world's most innovative directors. She went on to make Broadway history by becoming the first woman to win the Tony Award for Best Director of a Musical.
This acclaimed production has been seen by more than 70 million people around the world, and in addition to the two UK productions can currently be seen in New York, Tokyo, Hamburg, Madrid, Sao Paulo and on tour across North America, along with plans for Australia.
