Fountain Hills Youth Theater is proud to present “Disney’s The Lion King, Jr. the classic story of Simba, a young lion who is to succeed his father as King of the Pride Lands; however, after Simba’s paternal uncle, Scar, murders Simba’s father, the young lion flees into exile, believing himself responsible. After growing up in the company of the carefree outcasts, Timon and Pumbaa, Simba receives valuable perspectives from his childhood friend, Nala and his shaman, Rafiki. He then returns to his pride to challenge Scar, end his tyranny and take his rightful place in the Circle of Life as the rightful King. The African savannah comes to life on the stage with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle... and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale!
