The Lion King Experience

Adapted as a theatre education program that is taught through the lens of Disney’s The Lion King, this program launched in 2015 was the first of its kind. Never before had a hit Broadway musical developed a specialized program meant for young children to perform their own small-scale adaptations of the show.
