A new "Lion King" theater show in Disneyland park and a traveling exhibition about the history of jazz top the lineup of summertime events planned for the Disneyland Resort.
The new show, "Tale of the Lion King," will debut
on May 28 at the Disneyland park's Fantasyland Theatre. The original story is a theater
adaptation of "The Lion King," featuring the traveling troupe dubbed the
Storytellers of the Pride Lands. They will tell the story about a
lion cub becoming a king.
From June 1 to July 4, the
traveling exhibit "The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure"
will land in the Downtown Disney District. The exhibit celebrates the
history and legacy of jazz.
June marks a continuation of Disney Parks' Celebrate Soulfully initiative, which celebrates Black heritage and culture. Throughout the month, daily live entertainment will be held, and there will be special food and art offerings to be found throughout the resort.
Live music daily
Disney California Adventure park will be home to live music every day from June 1 to July 4. Additionally, a block party with live music will be held every night in the Hollywood Backlot area of the park.
Nightly music featuring genres like jazz, R&B, funk, Motown and doo-wop will be performed in Downtown Disney throughout June.
