Description: Setting: the Roman Empire during the early Christian era. Androcles, a meek Christian, encounters a lion while fleeing the Romans. He befriends the lion, who has a thorn in his paw. Androcles removes the thorn, and the lion becomes his friend. Later, Androcles is captured and taken to the Colosseum with a group of Christian prisoners including Lavinia, a patrician convert loved by a Roman captain, and Ferrovius, a fierce fighter. Androcles is sent into the arena to face a lion, who turns out to be the same lion he befriended. The lion joyfully licks Androcles' face in recognition. Caesar is impressed and pardons all the Christians. The entire company sings a finale urging people to help one another.
