Disney’s Lion King Musical Is Returning To The Stage In Manchester Next Year

The hit stage show is back!

Theatre may have ground to a complete halt during the pandemic, with many fearing for the future of the industry, but our favourite shows are finally beginning to return to the stage – including Disney’s hit Lion King musical.

Announcing its grand return just this summer, the beloved production – which has been running since 1997 – will finally come to Manchester as part of a brand new residency, after its 2020 UK tour was postponed as a result of the pandemic. Telling the famous story of Simba and his journey to Pride Rock in a whole new way, the show is made up of over 50 actors, dancers and singers, who’ll all be taking to the stage at Manchester’s Palace Theatre in October 2022.

Performing between October 27th 2022 – December 24th 2022, Mancs will finally be able to see the show from the low price of just £20 – with the show offering something new and exciting for the city that the whole family can enjoy.

Set against the production’s unique backdrop of the Serengeti Plains, the show has racked up a whole host of rave reviews over the decades, with the likes of the New York Times and Time Magazine, to name a few, singing the production’s praises.

Since debuting back in 1997, the show has been awarded numerous awards – including six Tony’s in just one year, with over 100 million people worldwide flocking to the theatres to see the show.
