The Port Aransas Independent School District in Partnership with the Port Aransas Community Theater is pleased to announce the return of the “King!”

“Disney’s Lion King, jr” will be returning to the Port Aransas Community Theater (PACT) this summer and this can be your opportunity to be involved with the magic that is “Disney’s Lion King,jr.”

“Bringing the production back just seems like the right thing to do” says Theater Director Darlene.  “The production generated so much support and pride for our community that we thought it would be a perfect production for those that are visiting Port Aransas over the summer.”  Darlene continues, “we had so many people that didn’t get a chance to see the show the first time.  We sold out every performance and this time around won’t be any different because of summer tourist and locals helping to spread the word about how good and professional looking the show is.”

Ken Yarbrough who directed Lion King earlier this year adds that “we are in the process of getting commitments from as many of the make up artist, tech directors, costumers, set designers, mask creators and puppeteers from the first run as possible.” “It (The Lion King,jr) was a beautiful show.  It was filled with so much talent from our locals, of all ages, and I am proud to be part of the return and I hope to be able to make an announcement in a few days with all of the returning cast and crew”
