You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney’s The Lion King.
Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney’s beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music.
At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba – the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
‘There is simply nothing else like it’
New York Times

There are eight wheelchair spaces available in the Stalls seating area, which we recommend booking well in advance.
The wheelchair accessible entrance is via a double EXIT door situated at the front of the theatre on Wellington Street, to the left of the five main doors. This is clearly marked and provides level access to the Accessible Toilets and the Stalls seating area. Upon arrival, please notify the Doorman who will open the doors for you. From the accessible entrance, a gentle slope leads past the Accessible Toilets to the Stalls seating area and the Stalls Bar, which is fully accessible.
The theatre’s main entrance is up three steps to the lower foyer. From here there are 7 steps down to the Stalls and 12 steps up to the Royal Circle landing. The Grand Circle is up 83 steps.
There are lift facilities available to all levels of the Lyceum Theatre, located via the entrance on Exeter Street. All levels, apart from the Stalls, are laid out over a number of steps. The lift to the Royal Circle brings you out into the auditorium at Row H. From here there are a total of 14 steps down to Row A and 12 steps up to Row P. The lift to the Grand Circle brings you out into the auditorium near Row B. From here there are 3 steps up then 3 steps down to Row A and 33 steps up to Row M.

We regularly schedule sign-interpreted performances of The Lion King in association with Theatre Sign. Throughout the performance, a qualified theatre sign interpreter stands on the left of the stage and uses sign language to relay music and words to deaf and hearing impaired patrons, all of whom are seated within easy viewing distance of both the stage and interpreter. For more information on sign interpretation, click here to go to the Theatre Sign website.
We regularly schedule captioned performances of ‘The Lion King’ in association with STAGETEXT. Captioning is a way of converting the spoken word into visible text that provides deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people with access to live performance. For more information on captioning, click here to go to the Stage Text website.
We regularly schedule audio described performances of The Lion King for those with visual impairments in association with Vocal Eyes. Audio description in theatre is a live verbal commentary on the visual elements of a production, delivered as a performance unfolds, through a discreet headset. One week before the performance, every visually impaired person who has pre-booked will receive a tape with detailed information on the production, such as sets and costumes. This tape also provides details on how to get to the theatre and orientation around it. For more information on audio description, click here to go to the Vocal Eyes website.
Guide Dogs are welcome in the auditorium or can alternatively be left in the care of theatre staff. If you intend to bring a guide dog, please state so at the time of booking.
