Don’t miss a moment of the magic! Please plan ahead and arrive early for Disney’s THE LION KING. If you’re not seated when the show starts, you’ll miss the first 15 minutes of the performance.

Giraffes strut. Birds swoop. Gazelles leap. The entire Serengeti comes to life as never before. And as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly emerges from the mist. This is Disney’s THE LION KING, making its triumphant return to Dayton!

More than 100 million people around the world have experienced the awe-inspiring visual artistry, the unforgettable music, and the uniquely theatrical storytelling of this Broadway spectacular – one of the most breathtaking and beloved productions ever to grace the stage.

Winner of six Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, THE LION KING brings together one of the most imaginative creative teams on Broadway. Tony Award®-winning director Julie Taymor brings to life a story filled with hope and adventure set against an amazing backdrop of stunning visuals. THE LION KING also features the extraordinary work of Tony Award®-winning choreographer Garth Fagan and some of Broadway’s most recognizable music, crafted by Tony Award®-winning artists Elton John and Tim Rice.

There is simply nothing else like THE LION KING.


The Extra Magic Package includes an excellent seat in the theatre and show merchandise.

Age Recommendation

Disney on Broadway performances are recommended for a general audience. As an advisory to adults who might bring young people, Disney recommends its productions for ages 6 and up. All guests entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket.


We recognize that the heart of an arts organization will always be the people we bring together and experiences we share.

The first Saturday matinee performance will be sign interpreted and/or audio described upon request.
