“It is time” – The Lion King arrives in Birmingham…

Here at Birmingham Hippodrome, for over two years teams of people have been working hard on bringing Disney’s spectacular production of The Lion King to Birmingham (even the doors have had to be widened to accommodate a rather large animal!).

Last Friday (28 Jun) the day finally came when we welcomed an audience for the first time to experience this unforgettable musical in Birmingham, and what a response we had! Standing at the back of the theatre, it was a magical experience to watch the sold-out audience gasp at the spectacular opening and get to their feet for a full standing ovation as the curtain came down. Speaking to people at the interval and as the show finished, it was clear that Birmingham is already falling in love with this outstanding production.

The show now begins a three month run at Birmingham Hippodrome, running until 28 Sep. Click here for more info and tickets.

If you are coming along to the show make sure to share your thoughts and photos on our facebook page, twitter feed and by using the hashtag #BHLionKing

We will be reporting back from the official press night this Thursday with more news…
