lion king Jr.

These are ideas for the costumes and do not have to be followed exactly!!! you do not need to buy or rent anything!!

Please no full body fluffy Halloween type animal costumes for the students these are too restrictive and too hot for the students.

Please begin building your costume with the items listed below. We encourage you to repurpose clothes you already have or shop at thrift stores minimize cost. If you are purchasing items, please do not remove tags or throw away receipts until we make sure that your items will work. Think creatively, and have fun creating your characters!!! All students must wear their black or tan Jazz shoes / gym slippers

Many students are multiple parts please try to keep the changes minimal by adding or taking off from the main costume, unless you are asked specifically to have multiple costumes please stick to the main role your student plays.  Costumes are required to be worn to class for a dress run on the weekend before the show. Masks will be provided for most characters.
