Hi! I am considering directing the Lion King Jr. Summer 2020 but the ONLY thing possibly in our way is the costumes. We generally have a cast of 25 kids so wondering how other theaters costumed the show with so many kid. Thank you!

Lion King Jr

We would love to put on this show in 2020 (We're a small primary school) and I wondered if the restrictions around venues still applies? I remember that when the license was first released to schools, this show could only be performed on school premises. Is this still the case? Thank you!

Do I buy the Showkit from MTI?

Is the Showkit sold from MTI, because I haven't found it on MTI but it is on other sites. Am I supposed to buy it from another site, and get the licence here? or is the Showkit included in the license?

I'm very excited to be directing the show!

Lion King Jr.

I am very interested, and received a license for Lion King Jr.  However, in reading through the license, I realize it states that only children in 8th grade and younger may perform in it.  This was supposed to be for our summer children's theater camp program, but I have teen interns in grades 9-12 that work with the students and also perform with them.  Is there any way to get exception from the rule?

High/Middle School Licensing

In the Non-School Production section of the restrictions for Lion King it mentions performers must be in 9th grade or younger.  There is no mention of a grade restrictions for high school/middle school performances.  Our productions include both high school and middle school students.  Is it correct to assume that this restriction does not apply to school productions?

If you are a non-school organization (i.e. Children’s Theatre, Community Theatre, Professional Theatre) you must adhere to the following in addition to the above restrictions:​

  • All performers must be in 9th grade or younger

Thank you!
