Lion King cast surprise plane passengers with impromptu 'Circle of Life' performance

Passengers appeared to enjoy the whole-hearted performance.

Actors from an Australian touring company surprised fellow plane passengers by breaking into song while waiting for their flight to take off.

The cast of The Lion King musical had just announced they would be opening their show in the city of Brisbane in September before they treated passengers to some in-flight entertainment by singing 'Circle of Life'.

Passengers and flight attendants near the cast members' seats appeared to be enjoying the unexpected performance.
