The Lion King

The Lion King is coming to Dublin.

Disney’s The Lion King returns to Bord Gáís Energy Theatre in September 2023. With an incredible cast of more than 50 actors, singers and dancers, the story of The Lion King roars into life using spectacular masks, puppets, and costumes to tell the story of Simba’s journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

Having played in more than 100 cities in 20 countries on every continent except Antarctica, The Lion King’s worldwide gross exceeds that of any film, Broadway show or other entertainment title in box office history.

Brian Gilligan will play the iconic villain ‘Scar’. Born and raised in Dublin, Gilligan trained at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and has featured in productions such as Romeo & Juliet at Mill Theatre Dublin and Jimmy’s Hall at Abbey Theatre Dublin. Brian is currently covering the role of Scar in the touring company of The Lion King. Brian said, “It is an honour to be stepping into the infamous role of Scar in my beloved hometown of Dublin at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. The villainous Scar is a dream role – he is an extremely complex character who audiences love to hate and a joy to bring to life on stage. I can’t wait to take to the stage in Dublin having been on tour with this amazing cast. What a homecoming.”
