Dubois Elementary to present The Lion King musical April 24-26

April 20, 2015

Dubois Elementary School will present The Lion King musical from Friday, April 24, to Sunday, April 26. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 6:30 pm. Sunday's performance begins at 2 p.m. It is Dubois’ first-ever musical production.

“Dubois staff members have put in many hours of after school voluntary instruction in order to make this a possiblity,” said Principal Donna Jefferson. “The Lion King falls into the genre of plays which is part of our literacy common core standards. Additionally, listening, speaking and language are being taught and reinforced which is also embedded in our common core standards."

Lion King character-themed concession packs will be sold during the performances and will include Scar, Simba, Timon and Pumbaa snack packs. There is no cost to attend the musical.
