Based on the 1994 Disney animated feature film of the same name and William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Lion King is the story of Simba, an adventurous and energetic lion cub who is next in line to be king of the Pride Lands, a thriving and beautiful region in the African savanna. When Simba’s father Mufasa is killed by his uncle Scar, though, Simba is led to believe that his father’s death is his fault, and he is encouraged to run away forever. Scar seizes power and with his already unstable mind deteriorating, the Pride Lands experiences a darkness and desolation from which only Simba can save the animals of the kingdom. Featuring classic songs from the film such as “Circle of Life,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” “Hakuna Matata,” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” The Lion King is a story and a spectacle about identity, family, and responsibility that is enjoyed worldwide by people of all ages.

It is December of 1818. The small Austrian village of Oberndorf bei Salzburg has seen much hardship: war, poverty, flooding. Now in the midst of a blizzardy cold winter, an assistant priest and a poor schoolmaster strive to lift the spirits of the congregation of St. Nicholas Church with an extra special Christmas Eve program. But there are more problems. The already ailing church organ is destroyed through a misunderstanding by the schoolmaster’s autistic son, Nicholas, who then, despondent, runs away from home. In the midst of this turmoil, the schoolmaster and priest come together to produce the world’s most beloved Christmas song, “Silent Night.” Silent Night is a celebration of peace and togetherness, but mostly it is a testament to the power of love during the holiday season.
