URBANA -- Some students at Yankee Ridge Elementary School are performing their version of a Broadway musical Thursday. They're singing and dancing in The Lion King.

Third graders transformed into Simba, Mufasa and many other characters to put on the performance for friends, family and classmates. They say the best part is getting to work together. They have another performance at 6 pm, Thursday.
