You have to be very careful when looking for musical librettos and scripts because they are often copyrighted and owned, and if you are planning on performing the show you have to have permission from the actual company that put the show on in the first place, otherwise you could get in major trouble. I know Les Mis have a student edition which they sell the rights for so schools and theatre companies can put on, but you have to apply for and buy.
If it's not on the internet, I'd maybe have a look at this book if you can order it from anywhere:
The Lion King: Pride Rock on Broadway
by Julie Taymor
It's a hardback, behind the scenes book all about the musical. I'm not entirely sure if it has the script in, but I'm mentioning this because the accompanying book for the musical Wicked has a libretto at the end of the book. It might be worth checking that out.
Or, try this website:
That's a very good site which goes into detail about a lot of Broadway/West End shows and usually has at least the song lyrics/libretto avaliable.
Hope this helps!
