The Lion King JR

AUDITIONS FOR DISNEY’S THE LION KING JR

The Un-Common Theatre Company is excited to announce auditions for our Young Performers Production of Disney’s The Lion King JR, to be presented at the Qualters Middle School in Mansfield March 10-12, 2017.

Hakuna Matata! Disney’s The Lion King JR tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa. To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. Disney’s The Lion King JR features classic songs from the 1994 film such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.

Schedule your audition today and be part of bringing The Lion King to life on stage. Join us as we share this magical story and its many unforgettable characters and songs.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT UN-COMMON AUDITIONS

Auditions for Un-Common shows are open to all those interested within the age ranges specified. No previous acting experience or affiliation with the theatre company is necessary.

An auditioner will audition with many actors and will be offered a role at the total discretion of the director, choreographer and music director. Parent participation, affiliation with Un-Common Theatre or past involvement will not be considered in casting decisions. Every performer comes with different strengths and qualities and casting decisions are made based on many factors including talent (singing, dancing and acting), look (age/height/coloring), how auditioners look/interact as a group, etc. This process is often difficult and the creative team (director, music director and choreographer) takes great care in casting the best mix of performers for each production.

We customarily present four productions throughout our season. Auditions and performance dates for these shows are:

Auditions Show Performances
September Fall Production November/December
December Young Performers Production March
December or January Spring Production April
May Young Adult Production July
May Improv Soup Monthly October – June
