Actor Avery Brooks, pictured, joins a live orchestra and a company of singers and dancers to narrate the story of Simba’s journey to become the Lion King during a performance of “The Lion King Concert in the Wild” on June 14, 2014. The sights, sounds and flavors of Africa come together each Saturday from June 7 – Aug. 9 during Harambe Nights, the dazzling new theatrical production and street party at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. During this special-ticket, after-hours event, guests are treated to a 55-minute theatrical extravaganza, “The Lion King Concert in the Wild,” which features a different celebrity narrator each Saturday, followed by a lively street party in Harambe Village complete with Afro-pop rhythms, street performers, African-inspired cuisine and specialty beverages.
