The students at Rock Springs Elementary captivated the imagination of their audience last week as they presented Disney’s The Lion King KIDS. The African savannah came to life with the familiar characters from the movie: Simba, Rafiki, Scar, Nala, Mufasa, Timon, Pumbaa and more as they journeyed from Pride Rock to the jungle... and back again.

Musical numbers included: One by One, Circle of Life, I Just Can’t Wait to Be King, Be Prepared, Hakuna Matata, Can You Feel the Love Tonight, He Lives In You, and Luau Hawaiian Treat.

The musical is based on the Broadway production of The Lion King from the movie of the same name. Music and lyrics by Elton John and Tim Rice. Additional music and lyrics by Lebo M, Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin and Hans Zimmer. With additional music adapted and arranged by Will Van Dyke.
