WICHITA, Kansas -- Kansans lined up six hours before the box office opened to get tickets to The Lion King.
Close to 800 Kansans got their pick of seats during a two-hour sale only at the Wichita-tix Box Office Saturday morning.
Organizers say the turnout was better than expected with a line that wrapped around the building.
The Wichita Theater League says they're looking forward to having the award-winning musical right here in town.
"That first number, The Circle of Life when the animals all come in, it will absolutely bring tears to your eyes,” said Amy Hamm with the Wichita Theater League. “It brought tears to my eyes, it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen on stage.”
Tickets start at $35 and go up to $135 depending on seats. If you'd like to get yours, they'll be on sale at the box office Monday through Friday. The month-long show kicks off Sept. 4.
