Lion King

On Saturday we went to see Lion King at the Burswood Theatre. We had high expectations, as many people had told us it was the best show they had ever seen. The theatre was packed. The crowds were queuing for drinks and merchandise before it started. Claire said the management might as well have got patrons to simply empty their wallets at the door!

We all enjoyed it, young and old. E already knew the story, having seen the Disney cartoon version. We were impressed by the beautiful sets reminiscent of African landscapes and the complicated portrayals of animals on the Serengeti plains.

The show has now ended its Australian run and the Disney juggernaut is moving on, inside 4 huge container trucks parked outside the stage door.
