Houston's stage is getting ready again for Disney's beloved musical "The Lion King" to prepare for The Hobby Center in 2024. Founded on the success of the animated classic, the stage adaptation will start its limited engagement on July 11 and take its final bow on August 4, as confirmed by Click2Houston.

Matinee and evening shows are distributed from Tuesdays to Sundays. On the heels of a 20-plus-year North American tour that has already graced over 90 cities, The Lion King stands as a cultural phenomenon that has exceeded the box office gross of any movie or Broadway production in history, a tidbit Broadway World emphasized.

Beginning December 8 at 10 a.m., tickets will go on sale, available for purchase at the Hobby Center Box Office and online. Ticket buyers should pay attention primarily to the Hobby Center and Ticketmaster as the official retail ticket outlets to avoid disappointment, as stated by Click2Houston.

With 25 years on Broadway, "The Lion King" has raked in an impressive six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It owes much of its enduring success to the vision of Julie Taymor, who received a Tony Award. Her imaginative costume and mask designs remain a hallmark of the show’s enduring appeal. Taymor, along with a creative team, continues to supervise productions to ensure the essence of the musical remains intact across all stages, according to Broadway World.

Houston's run is part of the 2023–24 Memorial Hermann Broadway at the Hobby Center series. For more information, fans can visit the official "The Lion King" website and social media pages.
