One of my favorite Christmas gifts was a ticket to see The Lion King with my friend Stephanie. She got us both tickets and we made a girl’s day out of it. We went to a nice restaurant and saw the Christmas lights along the San Antonio Riverwalk, then went to the Majestic Theater and saw The Lion King. Stephanie had done nothing but RAVE about this live show. She said she cried when she watched it for the first time and the opening song started. I was so excited!
When The Circle of Life started, I got goose bumps all over. (Stephanie cried again). My favorite part of the show is the animal costumes. The way they were able to create all the animals was amazing! My favorite was the cheetah. She was just gliding along the stage and was absolutely beautiful.
You remember the part in the movie where Zazu is in the rib cage and is being forced to sing to Scar? Zazu starts to sing “Let it Go” from Disney’s Frozen and Scar yells “Stop, Stop! Anything but that!” The adults in the theater were reduced to tears and rolling on the floor laughing.
I can’t believe that I haven’t seen this before or even thought about trying to see it. I’m so glad Stephanie got me a ticket and that I got to see it with her. That was a beautiful show and I can’t wait until I get to see it again.
