    Disney’s The Lion King, still running at the West End’s Lyceum Theatre where it is now in its 13th year, is to launch a separate U.K. tour, beginning performances at the Bristol Hippodrome Aug. 31, prior to an official opening Sept. 6, for an 11-week season.

    In a press statement, Thomas Schumacher, producer and president Disney Theatrical Productions, commented, “We continue to be thrilled by how UK audiences have enjoyed The Lion King in London, and have long wished to also share this production with audiences nationally. Following years of planning, and after receiving the counsel of some very smart friends in the British theatre world, we are delighted to be launching a production that conveys Julie Taymor‘s epic vision and at a moment that feels absolutely right.”

    Since first opening on Broadway in 1997, The Lion King has played in 15 countries on 5 continents and been translated into 6 languages. In addition to the ongoing original Broadway and London productions, it can be seen in Tokyo, Hamburg, Sapporo, Madrid and on tour in the U.S. T

    he UK tour of The Lion King will be the 20th production to premiere internationally.

    Tickets for the Bristol run go on sale Feb. 22. To book tickets, contact the box office 0844 871 3033. Tickets for the Manchester run go on sale Feb. 27. To book tickets, contact the box office on 0844 871 3004, or visit www.thelionking.co.uk for more details.

    I had an email yesterday about this, i went to the website and for 3 "normal" seats it was £55 each - just cant afford to pay that amount of money :sigh:
    Found a "cheap" one which was £32 - and it was that price cus there was a piller infront of it partially blocking the view!!!

    I so so so so need to see this - cannpt believe we have never been as it means so much to us as a story - we saw teh premier in Leicester square and went to our local cinema 22 times to see it.

    Taking our boys to the 3D version was simply wonderful
