The Lion King @ Gammage Auditorium Hakuna matata in Kiswahili means "no worries." This is the ongoing theme -- and theme song -- of Disney's The Lion King, a classic coming-of-age tale set on the plains of East Africa amongst a pride of lions and resident wildlife. A visual and musical extravaganza, Lion King tells the story of Simba, a young lion destined to follow his father as king of the Pride Lands. However, after the death of his father at the paws of his Uncle Scar, the cub runs away, only to be raised by carefree creatures. Growing up, Simba overcomes a variety of trials and tribulations, including battling sinister hyenas with glowing eyes, conquering fears not normally associated with being a lion, and gaining the courage to return and become king.

Travel to the African plains 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 22, at Gammage Auditorium, 1200 South Forest Avenue in Tempe. Tickets are $28 to $92. Call 480-965-3434 or visit -- Glenn BurnSilver
