This musical tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. The show features classic songs from the Disney film such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.

Callbacks for some of the roles will be Monday, September 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. Performances are January 27-30, but for most roles, limited rehearsals will start in December, and full rehearsals start in January. A calendar will be available at auditions.
