Galeboe Moabi, lecturer and director, says she drew her inspiration for the production from the 1994 American animated epic musical film, The Lion King.

“The production addresses current affairs in our country through symbols, metaphor and rituals and will appeal to young and old. It’s full of life, fun, wittiness, music, edutainment and audience interaction,” she adds.

The story has been adapted for a stage performance and is devised in collaboration with the cast.

Xenophobia, tribalism, racism and power abuse are some of the themes that will be highlighted.
