            Lion King Jr. is the licensed Broadway Junior stage adaptation of the beloved 1994 animated Walt Disney film. The original Broadway production featured music and lyrics by Tim Rice and Elton John, and book by Roger Allers and Irene Mecchi. The Broadway production began its life onstage in July, 1997 in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Orpheum Theatre before arriving on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre on October 15th, 1997 in previews, then officially premiering on November 13th, 1997. The Lion King has since moved to the Minskoff Theatre where it is still running after more than 9,000 performances, making the production the third longest-running show in Broadway history. The show has garnered numerous awards and honors, including six Tony Awards. The Lion King has been viewed by over 100 million people worldwide, making it an international sensation. The musical has since been adapted for school ensembles through the Broadway Junior musical theatre program to fit the vocal ranges, dance abilities, attention spans, and cast sizes of scholastic ensembles.

 

            The story of The Lion King Jr. begins as the sun rises and Rafiki the mandrill gathers the Animals of the Pride Lands at Pride Rock to welcome the birth of the newborn lion cub of King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi (“Circle of Life”). Elsewhere, the king’s jealous brother, Scar, sulks for he has lost his place as heir to the throne with the birth of the young cub, Simba. Mufasa is upset by his brother’s absence from what should be a joyous occasion. Time passes and Young Simba grows into a lively and curious young cub (“Grasslands Chant”). Mufasa shows his precocious young son the Pride Lands from the summit of Pride Rock, explaining to his son the delicate balance of the circle of life and that one day, he will be the king of it all. Mufasa also gives his son a stern warning to not venture beyond the Pride Lands. Young Simba excitedly shares the news that he will one day be king with his envious uncle, Scar. The devious lion in turn encourages his nephew to visit the forbidden Elephant Graveyard.

 

            From the very start of Young Simba’s journey, The Costumer will immediately transport your audience to the exotic Pride Lands with the help of our fabulous rental costumes! Our rental costumes for productions of The Lion King Jr. will transform each and every member of your ensemble into their respective animal characters in the show! Rafiki will take the stage at the show’s opening in an elaborate African-inspired crown with eye-catching feathers, along with a blue long-sleeved shirt to mimic the mandrill’s blue coat, African print leggings, a ragged over-skirt, a bold red collar and wide belt, as well as matching printed wrist and ankle cuffs with foot covers! Mufasa and Sarabi will be adorned in similar African-inspired ensembles complete with their own unique lion and lioness headpieces. Scar’s lion headpiece will accurately replicate the sinister lion’s look from the original animated movie, making him stand out amongst the other lions. The Costumer will also work its magic to transform the rest of your ensemble into a colorful collection of savanna wildlife, from Elephants, to Zebras, Leopards, Monkeys and much more! Specialized makeup kits complete with instruction guides for characters like Scar, Rafiki, Pumbaa, Zazu and other characters are available for purchase as well!

 

            Soon after Young Simba’s exchange with the sinister Scar, the young cub finds his best friend Nala. Young Nala is hunting with Sarafina and the other Lionesses (“The Lioness Hunt”) when Young Simba invites his friend on an adventure. After ditching their overbearing babysitter, Zazu (“I Just Can’t Wait to Be King”), the cubs quickly find that they may have made a mistake by coming to the graveyard when they encounter the ferocious and threating hyenas, Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed. Mufasa comes to the rescue and fends off the hyenas. Once the hyenas are sent away running, Mufasa takes the cubs home. After taking a beating at the hands of Mufasa, the hyenas are greeted by Scar who emerges from the shadows to recruit them for his murderous plan to become king (“Be Prepared”). Once they return to the Pride Lands, Mufasa chastises his son for foolishly disobeying him. Then, while looking up among the stars, Mufasa shares with his young son the guidance of their elders.

 

            As the Simba’s story continues to unfold, The Costumer will continue to provide you and your ensemble with an incredible array of rental costumes to tell your tale onstage! Young Simba and Nala will appear in more youthful versions of their lion elders’ ensembles and will be adorned with decorative headpieces for the finale of “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King.” Zazu will appear as a hornbill bird come to life in a black tailcoat with blue and white hand painted designs, shirt, vest, African-print leggings, gloves, and bird foot covers. Each of the hyenas will be outfitted with hooded tabards that feature their respective hyena’s face on the front.

 

            Scar soon after enacts his evil plan, killing Mufasa, making Simba believe that his father’s death was his fault, and ultimately assuming the throne. Simba runs away and is taken in by Timon and Pumbaa, who initiate him into their carefree way of life. However, Simba must learn to summon all of his courage and take back his home from his evil uncle.
