Disney's 'The Lion King' holds open auditions for children to join its 'cub school' programme

‘Cub School’ is a free, fourteen-week performance-training programme from which the roles 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 Saturday 20 September (registration from 10:30am) at RADA Studios 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 (4'10") in height. While earning 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 entering its 16th triumphant year at London’s Lyceum Theatre. Since its London premiere in 1999, the show remains the West End’s best-selling stage production and has recently welcomed its 12 millionth visitor. Tickets are currently on sale until 29 March 2015.

THE LION KING follows the adventures of the young lion cub Simba, as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destined role of King.

THE LION KING is produced by Disney Theatrical Productions.
