Lion King triumph

Ripley Court one of the first to put on the Lion King - and perform to Disney Coporation executives.


Ripley Court School are very proud to be one of the first five schools in the country to have performed Disney’s The Lion King. The play has only recently been adapted for the school stage, so it was a challenge to take on a brand new show. The musical, still featuring the best known songs such as Hakuna Matata and The Circle of Life, was performed by a 50 strong cast of Years 6 and 7 pupils.  The children worked incredibly hard and with unprecedented enthusiasm to put on two stunning performances. Directors Miss Thompson and Mrs Galloway were most impressed with the dedication and standard of the young cast who performed with clear enjoyment and pleasure. Representatives from Disney who attended said, “It was a wonderful performance and the most creative that we have seen. It was clear that the cast loved every moment!” Congratulations to all of those involved.
