Everyone had been telling how fantastic the costumes were and I couldn't wait to see how good these were. This statement was shown in all its glory from the opening scene to the musical. Every animal you could possibly think of living in an animal kingdom took to the stage made from various organic material were draped over the cast members whilst they sang the first song to the musical. The sight was truly breath taking as some of the cast memebers walked down the isles behind us and onto the stage. One animal caught my attention due to the shear size of the costume was a huge elephant appearing from the rear doors to the theatre. This elephant could have easily been at least 20 feet tall.
As the curtain dropped after this first act, the theatre arrupted with applause and you could sense the anticipation of what was going to appear next infront of our eyes was felt around the whole theatre.
The rest of the musical did not dissapoint one bit. Every scene was beautifully constructed, the dances incorporated with the songs were fantastic. The cast members would practically float across the stage whilst singing their lines. Another costume really grabbed my attention was several cast members dressed as antelopes. They would effectively gallop across the stage with large constructions of antelopes on their arms and with the cast members motions the constructions actually looked as if a group of antelopes were galloping across the stage.
I could go on for many more paragraphs explaining why this musical was so good. But I think you just have to witness the musical for yourself to understand what I am trying to explain.
Every cast member played their part perfectly and all the costumes just looked wonderful moving around the large stage in front of us. The two children playing young 'Simba' and 'Nala' were great, their singing sounded perfect together. I'm sure their parents would be ever so proud of them.
I think I shall stop boring you now with how good this musical was. I shall let you swith to another website now and order your tickets to the next showing of The Lion King. Because I know I shall be doing the same right after I click send.
