The Paoli Drama Department put on "The Lion King Jr." on November 30, December 1 and 2. The people in charge of the production were looking for a play with a large amount of lead roles so they could include as many people as possible. They found the musical as a great success.

"This is a beautiful story about family, challenges in growing up and facing loss, stepping up and taking responsibility, making friends where we least expect, and about how we truly are all interconnected in the great circle of life," said Director Maria Wishart.
