This is a comedy with plenty of laughs built in!

Arrr!  Lord Cranbury’s traveling company of scallywag actors just can’t seem to get their big break!  Could it be because some of them don’t bother to learn their lines?  Or suffer from terrible stage fright?  Certainly, it’s not because demanding diva Vivian Thatcher keeps changing the play to suit her mood, is it? 

Realizing the troupe’s in need of radical revitalizing, Cranbury decides to buy a ship and set sail with his thespian crew.  After all, if they are going to do a play about pirates, they should experience the real thing!  (It’s method acting, after all!)  But the ocean is no place for landlubbers:  Captain Reagan O’Flynn doesn’t take kindly to other buccaneers in her territory.  And the French naval commander, Capitaine Haute-Valois, just happens to be hunting for pirates to bring to justice.  But worst of all is the mysterious Murdock, who takes no prisoners in his quest to conquer the high seas.  Can the rag-tag group of pedestrian players find their sea-legs in time to avoid Davy Jones’s locker?  This pirate play-within-a-play provides the perfect platform for performers seeking a seriously funny challenge.  All aboard, mateys!

SHOW SYNOPSIS

RAFIKI gathers the ANIMALS of the Pridelands to welcome the newborn cub of King MUFASA and Queen SARABI ("Circle of Life with Nants' Ingonyama"). The king's jealous brother, SCAR, no longer heir to the throne, skips the ceremony, upsetting Mufasa. Time passes ("Grasslands Chant") and YOUNG SIMBA grows into a curious young lion. Mufasa explains the circle of life and that Young Simba will one day be king of the Pridelands. Young Simba shares this news with Scar, who encourages his nephew to visit the forbidden Elephant Graveyard. Young Simba finds his best friend, YOUNG NALA, hunting with SARAFINA and the LIONESSES ("The Lioness Hunt") and invites her on his adventure. Once they ditch their overbearing babysitter, ZAZU ("I Just Can't Wait to Be King"), the cubs encounter the ravenous SHENZI, BANZAI and ED in the graveyard. Mufasa arrives and pummels the hyenas, then takes the cubs home. Scar emerges from the darkness to recruit the HYENAS in his murderous plan to become king ("Be Prepared"). Back in the Pridelands, Mufasa reprimands Young Simba, then shares the guidance of their ancestors, up among the stars ("They Live in You").

Enacting his plan, Scar leaves Young Simba alone in the gorge and signals the hyenas to scare a herd of wildebeest ("The Stampede"). Scar alerts Mufasa, who leaps into the stampede to save his son. Mufasa rescues Young Simba, but Scar pushes his brother back into the gorge, where he is trampled. Scar blames Young Simba for the king's death and tells him to run away and never return. As Sarabi, Young Nala, Rafiki and the lionesses mourn the loss of Mufasa and Young Simba ("The Mourning"), Scar assumes the throne, uniting lions and hyenas under his dark reign. Lost in the desert, Young Simba meets TIMON and PUMBAA, who take him to their "worry-free" jungle home ("Hakuna Matata").

Under Scar's reign, the Pridelands are nearly destroyed. Now grown, NALA decides to leave and seek help ("Shadowland"). To her delight, she finds SIMBA alive in the jungle ("Can You Feel the Love Tonight"). Nala urges him to take his rightful place as king but, still ashamed, Simba refuses. Rafiki appears and helps Simba remember his father ("He Lives in You"). With newfound courage, Simba agrees to return to the Pridelands. Timon and Pumbaa distract the hyenas ("Luau Hawaiian Treat") while Nala rallies the lionesses. Simba confronts his uncle, the truth of Mufasa's murder is revealed and Scar runs away, pursued by angry hyenas. With peace restored in the Pridelands, Simba takes his place as king and the circle of life continues ("Finale").

 

     

  

 

 

 

 

POSTPONED BUT COMING IN THE  SUMMER OF 2021

ARE YOU A FAN OF "QUEEN"?

     Our summer musical, "We Will Rock You!" features more than 20 hit Queen songs including “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Killer Queen,” “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody To Love,” “We Are the Champions,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and many more.

     WE WILL ROCK YOU follows two revolutionaries as they try to save rock ‘n’ roll in a post-apocalyptic world. In an age where algorithms predict our every preference, WE WILL ROCK YOU is a musical for our time: a fist-pumping, foot-stomping anthem to individuality. 

     The music is all Queen but no one has to sing like Freddy Mercury to land a lead or supporting role in the show.
