IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PERFORMANCES - LAST UPDATED 16 MARCH 2020
Following government advice, the Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre have advised us that theatres should close until further notice, and therefore to protect the health and wellbeing of our theatregoers, cast and crew, The Walt Disney Company has taken the decision to suspend all future performances of The Lion King in the UK with immediate effect until such time as this advice changes. This suspension includes the West End production of The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre and the UK Touring production which is currently in residence at The Edinburgh Playhouse until 18 April. Our other UK tour engagements in Bradford, Cardiff, Southampton and Manchester currently remain unchanged, but we will continue to review the situation based on the advice we receive from official bodies. We are working with the Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG), the owner of London’s Lyceum Theatre and the Edinburgh Playhouse, to issue refunds or exchanges for all suspended performances. This is an unprecedented situation and we will work with ATG and other ticketing companies to process refunds or exchanges as quickly as possible.
For all casting enquiries relating to the London production of The Lion King, please email Akosua Boakye.
