Cobham Intermediate is putting on a production of Disney’s The Lion King Junior.

The show, which has a cast of 80 students, is directed by Mandy Roberts, musical directed by Philippa Chilvers and choreographed by Holly Smitheram.

Year 8 students Maggie Harris and Lily Barrowcliffe both act in the production and describe it as a “heart-warming, entertaining family show which will blow you away and take you on a journey through the circle of life.”

“From a student’s point of view, we personally think this has helped us break out of our shell and has given us a great confidence boost. From the outstanding performing, to the gorgeous set and costumes, this show is something you should definitely add on to your calendar,” Maggie said.

Students are taking part in all aspects of the show – from performing on stage to working in teams on make-up, set painting, sound, lighting and front-of-house.

The production is being held at the school hall from September 25-28.

•Tickets are $20 per adult and $15 for children under the age of 16. Tickets can be purchased from the school the website –
