Disney’s Lion King Opens in DC Tonight, See What They Brought to WHUR!

Disney’s Lion King opens tonight June 17, 2014 and runs ’til August 17, 2014. This outstanding Tony award winning musical will be taking over The Kennedy Center Opera House, in NW DC, for the next two months, and with an array of talented cast members on tour, it is definitely something you don’t want to miss!

In celebration of the opening night, The Lion King crew very generously stopped by the station this afternoon to give WHUR their  “swag bags,” which are full of Lion King apparel, lion cupcakes, hats, cups, and more! Several of the pieces received from the WHUR staff members will be available at the performance for those interested in purchasing.

The New York Times has stated that “There is simply nothing else like it!” See one of the greatest childhood movies on the big stage! It’s an experience you will never forget!  Hakuna Matata!

Tickets are on sale now at The Kennedy Center.
