‘The Lion King’ cast boogies down on TV

lionIf you’re a fan of Disney’s “The Lion King,” you’re in luck! Not only can you see the show in Vegas at Mandalay Bay, but you can catch a performance by the cast on one of TV’s hottest shows.

The Las Vegas cast of Disney’s Tony Award-winning  “The Lion King” will perform its spectacular piece, “Circle of Life” on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” result show. The show airs Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. Catch the breathtaking parade of costumes, animal puppetry and the largest number of performers ever to grace the “Dancing with the Stars” stage.

Disney’s “The Lion King” is the winner of more than 70 major awards and has appeared in 13 different countries worldwide. If you’re planning a trip to Vegas, this is one show you don’t want to miss. You can find more about it here. Before the show, you can walk just a few steps over to Mandalay Place and see the exhibit, which explains the creative vision of director Julie Taymor.

With a feature on “Dancing with the Stars” and a run in Vegas, maybe it’s time to dust off  your “Lion King” video tape and watch it again.


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies.
