NEWS: Disney’s Lion King holds open auditions for its Cub School

Open auditions are to be held for ‘Cub School’ – the programme where children who have the potential to play Young Simba and Young Nala in Disney’s musical THE LION KING have the opportunity to hone the skills required to take on these challenging rôles.

‘Cub School’ is a free, 14-week performance-training programme from which the rôles of Young Simba and Young Nala are cast. During the programme, children are trained in the disciplines of dance, voice and acting by teachers who are associated with THE LION KING.

The ‘Cub School’ auditions will take place on Sunday 16 March (registration from 10:30am) at Sylvia Young Theatre School in London.Children are not required to prepare anything in advance of the audition for Cub School and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Applicants must be between ages 7 and 11 and below 148cm (4’8″) in height.

While winning a place in Cub School does not guarantee a part in the stage musical, it has proved to be excellent training for young people with the ambition to work on stage.

Disney’s award-winning musical THE LION KING is now in its 15th triumphant year at London’s Lyceum Theatre. Since the UK premiere in London on Tuesday 19th October 1999, the show has welcomed over 11 million guests and remains the West End’s best-selling stage production. Tickets are currently on sale until 28 September 2014.

Winning over 70 theatre awards worldwide, THE LION KING follows the adventures of the young lion cub Simba, as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destined rôle of King.
