This article is from 2014.
Julie Taymor's blockbuster stage adaptation of The Lion King is set to continue its tour around the UK with a run at Sunderland's Empire Theatre in autumn 2014. The musical version of Disney's epic 'Hamlet with lions' animation will visit the theatre from Thu 18 Sep–Sat 1 Nov 2014. The show – which we awarded four stars when it visited the Edinburgh Playhouse last year – is 'a triumph of theatrical ingenuity' that's suitable for everybody: 'lovers of big budget family entertainment, theatre connoisseurs and everyone in-between.'
Tickets for The Lion King at the Sunderland Empire go on sale from 10am on Tue 21 Jan – for date and time info plus ticketing links, see the listings information below.
