With original Broadway songs from Elton John and Tim Rice, colorfully bold costumes, and a story that will inspire young and old, Disney’s The Lion King KIDS is a must-see this summer!

    Opening weekend with our cast of more than 50 summer campers was magical! Follow the “second star to the right” and you’ll find yourself at the Karen Wilson Children’s Theatre, just in time to visit Neverland. Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael and John have an adventure of a lifetime with the Lost Boys, Pirates, Indians and the determined Captain Hook. If you listen closely, you can hear, “tick, tock, tick, tock, tick tock.” That’s either the sound of the ticking Crocodile hungry for Captain Hook, or time running out on your chance to see Peter Pan at ARIEL Theatrical. Don’t miss it!

    Shows on July 6, 7 & 8, Thursday & Friday at 7 pm and Saturday at 2 pm and 7 pm.
