    Default Festival of the Lion King

    I heard they were moving this show to Africa. Does anyone know if it's up and running again yet, and if not, when it will be? Planning to be there in May and would hate to miss this favorite attraction.

    It's definitely coming back. I have a solid "source" (I'm friends with one of the lead roles). I know for a fact that they are currently in rehearsals. The exact date has not been published yet, but late May/early June is the target time period for return.
