When the passengers on a flight from Brisbane to Sydney boarded their plane, they had no idea that they were about to get more than their flight ticket's worth. The Australian cast of The Lion King, who were also flying economy entertained them with a spontaneous rendition of the musical's iconic prologue number, The Circle of Life.

After a fantastic day at their Brisbane season launch performance, the actors were in such high spirits that they had to spread the love. We couldn't help but grin when they hit the harmonies right – and they did every time.

Ah, who needs a pre-flight safety briefing when you can have the cast of the highest grossing Broadway musical sing to you?
