Clips from "The Lion King, Jr."

In May 2015, all 121 of our 6th graders participated in the production of Disney's "The Lion King, Jr." Since the show just became available in January, it was quite a feat. Costuming the show was probably the craziest part, and I hope to find time to give some tips and ideas on that. But for now, I'm posting a few video clips that I've uploaded to SchoolTube.

If you are considering performing this show with your students, I highly recommend it! The music is phenomenal, and the students loved everything about the musical. There are great parts for the chorus to play - boys enjoyed being wildebeests and other creatures, and girls loved being grasslands or graceful animals like gazelles and cheetahs.

I hope these videos will inspire you to take the leap into the wonderful world of "The Lion King!"

"Be Prepared": Scar gathers the hyenas and prepares to take over the Pridelands.

  1. I think this can be a decent activity for the varsity growing youngsters. My youngsters are on holidays recently and it's a decent plan.

  2. You guys present there are performing an excellent job.
