The Lion King Jr. play was terrific! All the kids are very talented actors and singers! Alex Walker did a wonderful job playing the villainous Scar, delivering his lines in a believable and seemingly-experienced way. Grace Mansfield and Savannah Deterding were hilarious as Timon and Pumbaa and kept the audience laughing all night long. Kiara Stowater sang a beautiful melody as Nala.
There was a touching scene between Ben Braddy as Mufasa and Zeek Deterding as Young Simba when they sang about the stars, and Ben picked Zeek up at the end, as a father would playfully pick up his son. There was even a part where the lions captured (non-violently) a baby antelope and carried him off stage.
Overall this play is a perfect family outing with something everyone can enjoy! Don’t miss the final performance Sunday at 2:00 pm. For more information about the play click here.
