The Children's Performing Arts of Miamisburg shares a preview of their production of The Lion King Junior. Based on the 1994 Disney animated feature film of the same name and William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Lion King is the story of Simba, an adventurous and energetic lion cub who is next in line to be king. When Simba’s father Mufasa is killed by his uncle Scar, Simba believes his father’s death is his fault, and he is encouraged to run away forever. Scar seizes power and the Pride Lands experience darkness and desolation from which only Simba can save the animals of the kingdom. Featuring classic songs from the film such as “Circle of Life,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” “Hakuna Matata,” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” The Lion King is a story about identity, family, and responsibility that is enjoyed worldwide by people of all ages.
