The Secret is OUT!

We are VERY excited to announce our Summer Production Camp title for this summer will be… Drum roll please…


Disney’s The Lion King, Jr!

The Lion King Experience is currently only available for Accredited Elementary and Middle Schools, but through a special arrangement with MTI (Music Theatre International) and the Junior Theater Festival, Parkway Playhouse Junior students will be able to bring this award-winning, inspirational show to the Parkway Playhouse stage this Summer!

“Disney’s The Lion King has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world and now for the first time ever you have the opportunity to produce this one-of-a-kind musical in your your school. The African savannah comes to life on your stage with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle and back again in this inspiring coming-of-age tale.” -Music Theatre International

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
