Magic Circle Theater: Lion King Jr.

Tuesday, July 31, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Magic Circle Theater at Tufts University is presenting five performances of Disney’s “The Lion King Jr.” directed by Luke Jorgensen. Based on the Broadway production directed by Julie Taymor, “The Lion King Jr.” is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king!

Remaining performances will be at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 1, and at 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 9.

Tickets are $8 through the University Tickets website.

Magic Circle Theater is New England’s oldest theater by and for children. In session for six weeks each summer, the company consists of young actors in grades 6-9, meeting to rehearse, construct scenery, create costumes, and perform.
