Lion King, Jr.

The question you're answering.
March 30, 2016
Why are the rights for Lion King Jr. restricted to schools? We have a non-profit children's musical group that emphasizes teaching children how to act, sing, dance, theater history, protocol, etc. I can't understand why we are not eligible for the privilege of performing this show. Definitely we are an educational group, and all ticket revenue goes back into the organization. We are all volunteers and none of us take a salary. Please let us perform this wonderful show!
