Now in its 20th triumphant year at London’s Lyceum Theatre, Disney’s award-winning musical ‘The Lion King‘ follows the powerful story of Simba as he journeys from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
Exploding with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music, ‘The Lion King’ has entertained over 15 million theatregoers since its UK premiere in 1999, and remains the West End’s best-selling stage production, and is the sixth longest-running West End musical of all time. This acclaimed re-imagining of Disney’s beloved film will redefine expectations of theatre.
The Lion King’ is delighted to announce its next dedicated Relaxed Performance.
Committed to creating a friendly and inclusive audience experience, the landmark musical will present a Relaxed Performance for 2019, having previously hosted five Autism-friendly performances, the most recent of which took place in London in June 2018.
Accessible to a wide range of audiences, relaxed performances are specially adapted for those with autism, those with a learning disability, or anyone with a sensory predisposition. Additional trained staff will be on hand, and dedicated quiet areas inside the Lyceum Theatre are available to any wishing to leave their seat.
The theatre warmly encourages those who feel this performance may suit their specific needs to attend.
In 2018, The National Autistic Society awarded Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ and the Lyceum Theatre an Autism-Friendly Award. The award demonstrates the commitment of both show and theatre to making the theatre experience for autistic people and their families as welcoming and accessible as possible, whilst raising an awareness of autism among the general public.
‘The Lion King’ Relaxed Performance will take place on Sunday 2nd June, at 1:30pm.
