Lion King cast surprise plane passengers with impromptu performance

IS this the best inflight entertainment, or what?

Virgin Australia passengers heading to Sydney from Brisbane were treated to an impromptu performance by the cast of the Lion King on Monday.

As the last few passengers were boarding the aircraft, the cast decided to keep everyone entertained with a rendition of The Circle of Life.


Cast member Toni Ann posted a video of the performance on youtube, with the following comment:

“We surprised our fellow passengers on Virgin Australia flight 0970 back to Sydney. After an amazing day at the official Brisbane launch announcement we felt elated enough to sing the Circle of Life. It was so much fun.”

The award-winning musical production of The Lion King will be roaring into the Lyric Theatre in Brisbane in September.
