Marty chats with two cast members from The Lion King coming to Ireland at the end of April at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

The production, telling the compelling tale of Simba, the young lion cub, as he journeys through life and struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destined role of King, is the largest musical production ever to come to Ireland with 21 giant trucks being used to transport the hundreds of masks and puppets, thousands of lights, spectacular scenery and more than 700 elaborate costumes used in the production.
