Please join St. Thomas the Apostle RC Church and fellow community members as we travel to Broadway on Wednesday, June 28th for the 2:00 PM Matinee of The Lion King.
We will board the bus at St. Thomas the Apostle RC Church, 5635 Berkshire Valley Road in Milton/Oak Ridge at 10 AM and depart promptly at 10:15AM to arrive in NYC around 11:30 AM.
Lunch will be on your own and then we will enjoy the performance of The Lion King at 2 PM at the Minskoff Theatre located at 200 West 4st Street (between 8th Avenue and Broadway). We will return to St Thomas RC Church following the performance.
The Lion King is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simha spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kindly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility of his position that life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba's wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when the weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king.
Journey with Simba as he realizes his royal destiny, all to a soundtrack of Award winning songs by Elton John and Tim Rice. With the call of Rafiki, a cast of African animals, brought to life by over 50 actors and dancers, is revealed during the rendition of "The Circle of Life" like you've never seen it before. The Lion King is a story of love and redemption that should not be missed.
The cost of the performance which includes orchestra seating, deluxe motor coach accommodations and driver gratuity is $117.
