At present, the show is undergoing a couple of US touring productions. The tour version of this show is quite similar to the original production of Broadway. However, there are certain changes here and there. For example, the Pride Rock, the grasslands, the stampede, and other such scenes that come out of the stage floor have been changed to slightly inexpensive arrangements. The sun that rises in the opening of the show has been cut in size for short-duration tours. Stages have also been made smaller. Besides this, tour productions will have low volumes of music.
