Disney’s The Lion King Jr. Encore Performances are playing at the Performing Arts Center of Kapolei (PACK), at Kapolei High School Forum. After coming off a nearly sold-out run in September and October, PACK is pleased to announce they have added an encore weekend of shows: November 24 through November 26, one weekend only. This 60-minute musical is based on the Broadway production directed by Julie Taymor and the well-known 1994 Disney film. The cast is made up of approximately 50 students, all of whom are island-wide members of PACK's multi-level, youth performance troupes: Company Kids, PACKids, and beginning performers, JRKidz. The show is directed by Rachelle Amparo, with vocal direction by Elika Santos, and choreography by Deanna Luster, Erin McFadden, Thomas Olson and Leslea White.
The Lion King JR. tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba, played by Shane Nishimura (young Simba) and Xander van den Berg (grown Simba). As Simba struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and fulfill his destiny to become king, he encounters a colorful cast of characters: there's the spunky lioness Nala, played by Alexis Bugarin (young Nala) and Alana Glaser (grown Nala); the charismatic meerkat Timon, played by Kainoa Chorman; and the lovable warthog Pumbaa, played by Ka'enaloha Watson. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save the beloved Pridelands built by the hard work of his father Mufasa, played by Jonah Lorica, Simba must first find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar, played by Jeremiah Ulufanua . The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film, such as “Hakuna Matata”, and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”, as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.
PACK's production of Disney’s The Lion King JR. is open to the public at Kapolei High School on November 24 at 7pm, November 25 at 3pm and 7pm, and November 26 at 4pm.
