Lakers members showcased their talents again this year with their annual stage spectacular at Mermaid Arts Centre.

This year they combined their acting, musical and dance skills to perform their own production of the Disney classic, The Lion King. G

Audience members sang along and were blown away by the performances from each member of the cast.

The Lakers actors and musicians told their audience about the adventures of thee young lion Simba, the heir of his father Mufasa.

Simba's wicked uncle Scar plots to usurp Mufasa's throne by luring father and son into a stampede of wildebeests.

But Simba escapes, and only Mufasa is killed. Simba returns as an adult to take back his homeland from Scar with the help of his friends Timon and Pumbaa.

The cast and crew worked hard for months to prepare an amazing and entertaining show for their family members and friends.

They put on a fabulous production each year, and this was no exception.

Excitement had been building at the club in advance of curtain up, and everyone enjoyed their time on stage verye much.
