Cast members from Disney's production of "The Lion King" at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas will be giving free performances at The Grove tomorrow, July 9, at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Performers who have appeared on Broadway as well as traveling productions of the popular Julie Taymor-directed musical based on the equally popular animated film will perform songs including "Circle of Life," "Shadowland," "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and "Endless Night," alongside the FAME Church Choir of Los Angeles.

The Grove is celebrating "The Lion King Day," and visitors can also create their own "Lion King"-themed mask made from recycled materials with Ann Closs-Farley Designs from 3 p.m.-7 p.m.
