BROOKLYN - Students in East New York are getting the chance to perform a special rendition of a childhood classic that is still one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time. 

"The Lion King" has come to the stage at P.S. 346 after Disney provided the school with a grant to produce their version of the show, which is among Broadway's longest running plays.

The young performers have everything from colorful costumes to the set, and they've put in hard work and lots of rehearsals to showcase their talents. 

The grant is for three years, giving the future students more opportunity to perform.
