ABOUT THE MUSICAL
RAFIKI gathers the ANIMALS of the Pridelands to welcome the newborn cub of King MUFASA and Queen SARABI. The king's jealous brother, SCAR, no longer heir to the throne, skips the ceremony, upsetting Mufasa. Time passes and YOUNG SIMBA grows into a curious young lion. Mufasa explains the circle of life and that Young Simba will one day be king of the Pridelands. Young Simba shares this news with Scar, who encourages his nephew to visit the forbidden Elephant Graveyard. Young Simba finds his best friend, YOUNG NALA, hunting with SARAFINA and the LIONESSES and invites her on his adventure. Once they ditch their overbearing babysitter, ZAZU the cubs encounter the ravenous SHENZI, BANZAI and ED in the graveyard. Mufasa arrives and pummels the hyenas then takes the cub’s home. Scar emerges from the darkness to recruit the HYENAS in his murderous plan to become king. Back in the Pridelands, Mufasa reprimands Young Simba then shares the guidance of their ancestors, up among the stars
