Disney’s The Lion King JR. is playing at Eagle Rock Middle School Auditorium starting on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, at 7 pm.

The 7th and 8th grade cast contains approximately 60 students led by Drama Teacher, Sue Parrett.
“This is my first adventure in presenting a musical at the middle school level. I was pleasantly surprised during the 2 days of auditions when over 70 students showed up to either be in the show or to help paint, build, or make costumes. This has been a great school-wide project with amazing support from faculty, staff, and parents. I’m so excited to see the finished product!”
The Lion King JR. tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands , Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar.
