Please sign up for a 5-minute slot of your choice and read the information below on what to prepare. We are looking for personality, bright spirits, and a love of performing! Sell us on you.  Come prepared with your song - but even more importantly come with big, joyful smiles and your biggest, brightest self. Hakuna Matata! (It means "No worries")

LYRICS and TIME used to find the song on the link.

"Circle of Life"  Go to 2:10-2:55 in link

It's the circle of life, And it moves us all

Through despair and hope; Through faith and love

Till we find our place on the path unwinding

In the circle, the circle of life.


"I Just Can't Wait to be King"   Go to 7:52-8:22 in link

I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!

I've never seen a king of beasts with quite so little hair.

I'm gonna be the mane event like no king was before

I'm brushing up on looking down, I'm working on my roar

Thus far a rather uninspiring thing...Oh, I just can't wait to be king!


"Be Prepared"  Go to 11:57-12:28 in link

Let's prepare for a chance of a lifetime, be prepared for sensational news.

A shining new era is tiptoeing nearer

(And where do we feature?)

Just listen to teacher

I know it sounds sordid, but you'll be rewarded

When at last I am given my dues!

And injustice deliciously squared...Be prepared!


"Hakuna Matata"  Go to 23:45-24-15 in link

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase

Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze

It means no worries for the rest of your days

It's our problem-free philosophy, Hakuna Matata!

"Can You Feel the Love Tonight"  Go to 32:40-33:27

Can you feel the love tonight, the peace the evening brings the world

The world, for once, in perfect harmony with all it's living things ...

Can you feel the love tonight, you needn't look too far

Stealing through the night's uncertainties, love is where we are.
