Disneyland plans summer debut of ‘The Lion King’ show

The musical stage show The Lion King, which will be presented at Disneyland this summer, will offer a new adaptation of the ancestral story of how a young lion cub becomes the king of the jungle, told with singers, dancers and drummers.

According to the Disney Auditions website, The Lion King’s Tale will open in early summer at the Fantasyland Theater in Disneyland.

Disney Live Entertainment is looking for singers, dancers and drummers for The Lion King, which will begin rehearsals in late April, according to the audition website.

The “early summer” schedule means that the Anaheim theme park is likely targeting the debut of The Tale of the Lion King show in late June or early July.

Disney is hiring vocalists to play African lions Simba, Nala, Mufasa and Scar, as well as Pumbaa the warthog, Timon the meerkat, and Banzai and Shenzi the hyenas. The show will be narrated by an Earth mother character named Mwongozo (Swahili for “guide”).

The Disneyland animation team is also looking for dancers who can sing and drummers who can play the djembe, dundun, shaker and other West African percussion techniques to join a traveling troupe of African storytellers who tell the story of The Lion King through song and dance.

According to the Disney Auditions website, vocalists, dancers and drummers of all genders, abilities, types and nationalities will represent Africa’s rich culture and heritage.

The show “The Tale of The Lion King” is moving to the Fantasyland Theater after playing on the shores of Paradise Bay in the “World of Color” viewing area before the closure of Disney California Adventure due to the pandemic.

The modestly sized DCA show, featuring an 18-piece ensemble, is likely to expand to match the scale and size of the Fantasyland Theatre.

The DCA production featured new musical arrangements of popular songs from the original film, which turned 25 in 2019. At the time, the theme park stage performance served as a film tie-in for a photorealistic computer-generated remake of The Lion King.

The new score includes elements inspired by the original compositions. The vocal performance was accompanied by a percussive soundtrack from a troupe of drummers.
