HAKUNA MATATA! No worries- we're doing THE LION KING: A Drinking Game - Minnesota

Come join some of the Twin Cities finest actors, improvisers, and comedians as we perform a LIVE stage reading of this Oscar winning animated classic! With props, costumes, music, dance and fight choreography and, of course DRINKING! 

After being anointed as the next King of the Pridelands, young lion cub Simba is eager for his future as the heir to his proud father Mufasa's place as king. However, this makes Simba's villainous uncle Scar jealous of him. When tragedy strikes, Simba is devastated and runs away from home. Meeting up with two outcasts named Timon and Pumbaa, Simba embraces their ways of 'Hakuna Matata'. Years later, approached by his childhood friend Nala and the wise baboon shaman Rafiki, Simba must return home to stop Scar's evil reign and take his rightful place in the Circle of Life. 

This 1995 animated Disney Classic won multiple Oscars and is beloved by children of all ages. Ranked as #4 in the American Film Institutes Top Animated Films, at #18 by Time Magazine in their 25 Best Animated Films of all time list, and is the inspiration for one of the biggest Broadway hit musicals ever. Filled with iconic characters, memorable music, rambunctious comedy, and sincere heart, we just can't wait to perform this movie Drinking Game Style! We ain't lion when we say be prepared for a sensational show and DRINK UP!
