Be a Lion

Dec 12 - 15 , 2018 · DUKE ENERGY THEATER at Spirit Square

$15 Wednesday 12/12, $20 for all other performances.

Presented by: BNS Productions

Be A Lion picks up where the wiz left off. It answers the question, what happens now? After Dorothy clicked her heels and found her way home, Oz was left without a leader. Total chaos takes over. A second-generation evil monkey witch rightfully named “Damneesha” manages to seize all of OZ. Her mission is to avenge the murder of her mother.  Who better to restore order in the Emerald City than The Lion? 

Be A Lion is fun for the entire family. We are introduced to new characters as well as the familiar ones. 17 original songs that would have you singing them long after the performance. It’s like taking the singers from Motown and Hamilton and putting them in Oz.


Groups of 10+ can receive 10% off tickets, not available on Wednesday’s performances.  Please call 704-348-5752 to purchase group tickets.
