The Lion King at Charlestown Academy

18th July 2016

Hakuna Matata!
Charlestown ACE Academy has been alive with the music of the Lion King for the past few weeks as their Year 6 class worked tirelessly to perfect their production. They certainly did not disappoint as staff, pupils, parents, friends and family were wowed by the performances they put on during the last week of term. From the superb singing ensemble, to the confident narrating Rafikis, the playful young Simba, the strong Mufasa and the comedy provided by Timon and Pumbaa, all children played a part and put on a show to remember. 
In preparation of the performance, Year 6 visited London in the penultimate week of term and during their visit they enjoyed the West End performance of the Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre. They were also given some pointers during a dance workshop at the Pineapple Dance Studios. 
Our thanks go to all of those involved in making the production a huge success and for ensuring our Year 6s leave with memories that will last them a lifetime.
