Kroc Junior Theatre Presents Lion King Jr.

Jul 9, 2021 | by Glynis Eckert

The Salvation Army Kroc Center is proud to present its annual Kroc Junior Theatre Musical, Disney’s “The Lion King, Jr.” The 60-minute musical is based on the Broadway production directed by Julie Taymor and the 1994 Disney film. This production features over 40 of our amazing Kroc Junior Theatre actors.


“The Lion King, Jr.” tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters, including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film, such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.


Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors/children. To purchase advance tickets please visit Tickets will also be available at the door.
