Went last night at the police theatre Absolutely fantastic show My granddaughter loved it

5.0 star rating Lesley Rabbitt from Nottinghamshire


My Daughter got me tickets for this show as a Christmas present, and I must say it was one of the best presents I have had !. From the opening scene, with all the animals (fantastic costumes and props ) to the fantastic actors , the music , the dancing , the singing .absolutely fabulous. And the whole lighting thing was so good , it made you think it was in Africa. I have been to quite a few theatre shows now ,some being really good , but Lion King is the best that I have seen !. The only thing that was a bit of a dissapointment , was at the finale when all the cast take their bows , they didn't bring on the two young actors who played young Simba and Nala , I think they both deserved their own applause !. . Other than that I can not praise this show enough, a special mention to the Lady who played Rafiki, brilliantly played . I can not recommend this show enough. A fantastic , brilliant ,spectacular show . Please go and see it .

4.5 star rating H Q from york


Great show, the kids & adults loved it, it was my second time & I would recommend it to anyone. 3 members of our party felt that adult Nala was off key in all her numbers. Hope it was a one off!

4.5 star rating Johan Swensson from Åhus,Sweden


An absolute thrill to watch. We were mesmerized by the performances both individually and for the whole setting. A technically brilliant performance but also with a great bit of feeling and sense of humour. A show truly worth recommending! The Swensson family, Åhus Sweden

What we thought

EPIC wonderful Magical

Bringing such an epic landscape to life on the stage is quite a feat of creative skill that has yet to be matched anywhere else on stage.
