Sept 18-19: Manila auditions for the Lion King
Spread the word. It is now our turn to shine. Base Entertainment Asia and Singapore Repertory Theatre are holding auditions for Filipino young talents, ages 8 to 13, to fill the roles of young cubs Simba and Nala in the Southeast Asian premiere of Disney Theatrical Group's "The Lion King".
Auditions will be held on Saturday, September 18, 2010 from 12 noon to 6 p.m., and Sunday, September 19, 2010 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Arts in Taguig City, FVR Park, 26th Street, Bonifacio Arts Center, The Fort, Taguig City (www.artsintaguigcity.com). Singing and dancing experience is required.
Six successful applicants for the roles of young cubs Simba and Nala will star alongside a cast of 49 triple threats who hail from eight countries and five continents, including "The Lion King" alums from the West End and Paris productions. Base Entertainment Asia brings the phenomenal musical to the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore beginning March 2011. The people behind the Company are very much committed to duplicate the original Broadway elements of the show - its hummable pop songs, gorgeous sets, and intricate Bunraku puppet-inspired costumes. The Singapore production will likewise cast South African talents to preserve the show's spirit of authenticity.
Young auditionees from the Philippines must register for the auditions. Please email resume with a headshot at LionKingAuditions@srt.com.sg.
