For the first time ever Disney's The Lion King Broadway play is coming to Grand Rapids!

Broadway Grand Rapids made the announcement on their Facebook page on Thursday morning and will make its debut for the 2019-2020 season.

Believe it or not, The Lion King Broadway play has been around since 1997 and has been the most successful musical since; winning 70 awards internationally.

Obviously, this is a HUGE deal and tickets are going to go fast so the best way to secure your spot is to buy a season subscription for 2018-2019, that way you're guaranteed tickets when your subscription gets renewed for the next season.

Show dates and ticket sales have yet to be announced but VIP packages will also be available. You can get more info here.

There's a lot to look forward to in the upcoming season at Broadway Grand Rapids because Hamilton will also be featured.
