With an incredible cast of more than 50 actors, singers and dancers, the story of The Lion King roars into life using spectacular masks, puppets, and costumes to tell the story of Simba's epic adventures.

The landmark musical, which has now been seen by over 100 million people worldwide, visited the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre last Christmas for a 6-week run.
