Tickets for Disney's Tony® Award-winning musical THE LION KING went on sale in Madison, WI on Saturday, December 5 and sold over 8,000 tickets, dwarfing the previous record for single-day sales of a single event, set in 2007 when 2,962 tickets were sold for Spamalot. In fact, Saturdays totals even surpassed Overtures biggest overall sales day, when patrons bought just over 6,000 tickets for the 80 performances on the entire 2006/07 season, including Mamma Mia and Cats.

Madisons most eagerly awaited stage production will begin performances at Overture Center for the Arts on Tuesday, April 27 for a limited 4-week engagement through Sunday, May 23. The opening night is Thursday, April 29 at 7:30 pm. With 8 performances a week, there are still approximately 30,000 tickets available, although weekend matinees have limited availability. Weeknight and Sunday night performances have the best choice of seats.

Saturday was a great day for us and a great day for Madison, said Overture Center President & CEO Tom Carto. "The energy and excitement here at Overture was incredible. We're thrilled to bring this one-of-a-kind show to Madison."
