Lion King Jr. Masks Available 

Nichols Middle School in Evanston is seeking a school who will be putting on Lion King Jr this year. We have created a large collection of headdresses with masks for each of the characters. We would like to find a new home for them with a school who needs them. You must be willing to come and pick them up at Nichols in Evanston. There are over 55-60 masks. They took over a year to make and are beautiful and fully 3-D.
