Maryville Young Players will present “Lion King, Jr.” Friday through Sunday, June 19 to 20 at the Lee and Nina Schneider Center for the Performing Arts at Maryville High School. Actors from the Timon and Pumbaa casts learn choreography for the upcoming MYP production. They are under the direction of Vanessa Parsons, vocal music teacher for Maryville High School.
