Library Lion

Based on one of the 100 Best Children's Books of All Times, by Time Magazine 


LIBRARY LION written by Michelle Knudsen and illustrated by Kevin Hawkes. Adapted into a massive successful musical play by the renowned playwright Eli Bijaoui. 

In the library, there are books. But also very clear rules: no shouting, no running, no eating or drinking. But what happens when one day a lion enters the library? He doesn't roar or rampage, and contrary to expectations, he peacefully joins storytelling hour. Not everyone is okay with this, after all, he doesn't abide by the rules. (A lion? In the library? – that's completely out of order!) It will be revealed that rules are important to follow, but not only that: That it is also very important, to dust off some of these rule books as well. 

Prepare for a theatrical experience that will roar its way into your heart. Don't miss this enchanting adaptation, where stories come alive and where even the wildest of guests might just find a place to belong.
