Broadway’s 25th anniversary of The Lion King will see a select number of tickets benefit the Entertainment Community Fund. 

Formerly the Actors Fund, the Entertainment Community Fund supports those working in the entertainment and performing arts industry.

The Lion King’s 25th anniversary performance is set to take place on November 13 at Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre, which is operated by the Nederlander Organisation.

The Minskoff Theatre has been home to The Lion King since 2006, after the musical was officially launched at the New Amsterdam Theatre on November 13 in 1997.

There have been 28 touring and international productions over the show’s lifetime, with the production also entertaining more than 110 million people. Roughly 115,000 theatre-goers still watch The Lion King each week at the Minskoff Theatre.

In a tweet, the Entertainment Community Fund said: “We’re honoured to have a limited number of tickets available for sale to The Lion King’s 25th Anniversary Performance on Broadway! Sales from these select tickets will support our programs and services for those in need in the performing arts.”
