The stage at Lanterman Auditorium will erupt in song and dance as local students in grades three through six present “The Lion King KIDS” on Friday, March 4 at 7 p.m. The African savannah comes to life on stage with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle and back again in this inspiring coming-of-age tale.

Twenty-five young ALFie Players cast members will perform under the direction of Assistance League of Flintridge drama director Katelyn Fike. She has directed multiple ALF shows including “James and the Giant Peach JR.” and “Willy Wonka KIDS.” Tristan Waldron is the assistant director and Nancy Abbott is the musical director.

Come and enjoy familiar musical numbers such as “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” and “Hakuna Matata.” Lanterman Auditorium is located at 4491 Cornishon Ave. Admission is free; masks are required.

A drama class for children will be available during Assistance League’s summer school from June 20 through July 15. Fall drama productions rehearse in September and October, with a November performance. The winter productions rehearse in January and February, with a performance in March.
