The beloved Disney stage show will be made more accessible to autistic Brisbane audiences thanks to this special performance.

Disney’s The Lion King has worked closely with Autism Awareness Australia to create a friendly and supportive environment for Brisbane fans to enjoy this award-winning musical.

The specially adapted performance of the hit musical will be suitable for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. Trained staff will be on hand and dedicated quiet and activity areas will be available should anyone need to leave their seats. Slight adjustments to the production will include the reduction of any jarring sounds or lights focused into the audience.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains to the evocative rhythms of Africa, The Lion King uses breathtaking theatrical magic to tell the story of Simba’s epic journey to fulfil his destiny as King of the Pridelands. Seen by over 75 million people, Disney’s landmark musical event The Lion King is a worldwide phenomenon that will redefine your expectations of theatre.

Autism Awareness Australia is the nation’s leading not-for-profit autism education and advocacy organisation, founded in 2007.
