Lion King Jr. opens May 5

Trek into the heart of a majestic lion kingdom to join young cub, Simba, and his friends as Family Life Youtheatre presents “The Lion King, Jr.” in Bath, May 5-7.

Students in the production study singing, acting, dancing - and for this year’s show - some stage combat. As part of the process, Family Life instructors teach Christian values with the goal of making a lasting difference in the lives of young performers.

“Not only do these kids learn how to perform, but they also develop character values and learn the importance of treating one another with significance,” says Family Life Performing Arts Director, Peter Maier. "The process is fun and encouraging. I’ve seen students who struggle socially or who have special needs come alive with confidence because of the safe atmosphere we engender in the arts.”

Lion King Jr. opens Friday, May 5, at Family Life. Performances are at 7pm, May 5, and 3pm, May 6-7.      Tickets are $11.
