The first dedicated autism-friendly performance of Disney’s The Lion King in the UK was held at the Lyceum Theatre in London’s West End on Sunday 14 April. Following from this success a date has been set for a performance in Edinburgh on the 24th of November 2013 with a further London date planned in 2014. Disney’s THE LION KING has worked closely with The National Autistic Society to create a friendly and supportive environment to enjoy this award-winning musical. The specially adapted performances will be suitable for people with autism, with trained staff on hand in dedicated quiet and activity areas should anyone need to leave their seats.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains to the evocative rhythms of Africa, THE LION KING uses breathtaking theatrical magic to tell the story of Simba’s epic journey to fulfil his destiny as King of the Pridelands.
