“There is nothing like being able to perform together again, and the kids are very excited,” Malibu High School Choral Director Krysta Sorensen said. “This will be our first live show in the theater since the COVID 19 shut-down in March 2020, and we are looking forward to sharing The Lion King Jr. with everyone.”
