                          For an entirely virtual option, please scroll to the bottom of the page. 


This fantastic musical tells the story of Simba, a young lion who is to succeed his father, Mufasa, as King of the Pride Lands; however, after Simba's uncle Scar (Mufasa's jealous younger brother), murders Mufasa, Simba is manipulated into thinking he was responsible and flees into exile. Simba grows and matures living in the wilderness and meeting some hilarious new friends. He is also given some valuable perspective from his childhood friend, Nala, and his shaman, Rafiki, before returning to challenge Scar to end his tyranny and take his place in the Circle of Life as the rightful King.

REHEARSAL LOCATIONS
Random Farms Studio 

77 Executive Blvd., Elmsford, NY 10523

GRADES
3-8
This program is open to performers of all experience levels.

SENIOR DIRECTOR 
Julie Schwartz Webb

SCHEDULE
Program runs early-January to mid-April. Each Workshop group rehearses once a week for the first 11 sessions.  Brush ups and Performances are on a slightly different schedule. Scroll down to view details for each group!

PERFORMANCE
Random Farms is thrilled to bring back live performances with audiences! All performances will take place at an outdoor venue. Audience size will be limited based on venue size and all audience members will be masked and seated in a socially distant manner.

NEW COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
Rather than running our workshop sessions with 24 kids, each session will be broken up into two smaller casts with no more than 14 children and 3 adults (the director, assistant director, and counselor). The small cast size will allow each cast to rehearse and perform in a socially distant way, with children being kept six feet away from one another.  This also gives each performer more individualized instruction, and plenty of production involvement and features.

For our winter workshop, our first 4 sessions will be music rehearsals conducted virtually, over zoom, so as to prevent indoor singing as a group.  Starting in February with session 5, our choreography and blocking rehearsals will be conducted indoors at our studio. All performers will be socially distanced and all participants will be required to wear masks. Casts will be kept separated from one another and will not mingle. 

If a child falls ill, we ask parents to inform staff and share their child's symptoms. If a child presents with symptoms that may be COVID-19, we will inform the families in that child's cast that a child has presented with possible symptoms. We may also suspend the session or move to virtual rehearsals until the symptomatic child has been tested.

TUITION*
$665 - Subsidized tuition

$1,109 - Actual cost

Our subsidized tuition prices make participating affordable to a more diverse community. 
 
Please consider paying the actual cost, and everything over the subsidized tuition amount will be a tax-deductible donation! This will help support our outreach efforts, which include providing scholarships, discounted tickets, and free performances to those in need.
 
*Each registrant is also responsible for a $10 processing fee at the time of registration.

HOW TO REGISTER
Enrollment in this program is first-come, first-served. 

REFUND POLICY 
Covid-19 Accommodations:
Register with peace of mind! Program credits and refunds will be available for the full value of the subsidized tuition if Random Farms is unable to run a group. Program credits and refunds will also be available for the partial value of subsidized tuition if the program can only run virtually for part or all of the session. 

SCHOLARSHIPS
A limited number of financial aid packages are available. Please click here for info and application.

COSTUMES
Traditional costumes for our final performance will not allow for appropriate social distancing, due to the physical closeness with adult staff required for fittings and getting into and out of them. Instead, each child will receive a complimentary show t-shirt which they will wear for our final performance.

VIRTUAL OPTION

LION KING VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE

If you would prefer an entirely virtual winter option, we invite you to join our Monday Zoom sessions. During these sessions, the kids will have the opportunity to learn all of the music, choreography, as well as some scene work from The Lion King KIDS, without attending any in-person rehearsals. They will be assigned a different role each week and will be given solo and line features. Each virtual rehearsal will be 90 minutes long. While there will be no formal production at the end of our virtual program, we will invite each participant to submit a video of themselves performing their favorite Lion King musical number.  The program will culminate in a Zoom gathering, which will involve live scene work presentations and a viewing of the videos.
