It has been announced that open auditions are to be held for Cub School which is the programme where children who have the potential to play Young Simba and Young Nala in Disney's The Lion King have the opportunity to "hone the skills required" to take on the roles.
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 20th 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.
The Lion King is currently booking at the Lyceum Theatre until 29th March 2015.
