As the sun rises in the opening scene of The Lion King, Rafiki (centre, played by Isabelle Poirier and Kayla Duran) the mandrill presents Simba, the cub of King Mufasa (Shane Rouleau) and Queen Sarabi (Klara Lessig) to the gathered animals.

With dazzling costumes, clever staging and a large “pride” of enthusiastic young singers and dancers, the Quebec High School (QHS) production of the smash animated film and Broadway musical The Lion King was yet another triumph for the school’s performance programs.
