Shanghai Disney Resort Seeks Auditions for The Lion King

08 September 2016

The premiere Mandarin language production of  The Lion King officially opened this June at the Walt Disney Grand Theatre. Featuring a cast of top actors from China and around the world, the show has been receiving rave reviews from audiences.

The musical truly brings the story to life in a way that is authentically Disney, distinctly Chinese. The Lion King features Young Simba, a much sought after role for young male performers. This month, Shanghai Disney is holding auditions for this important role. Performers hired will have the opportunity to join this global hit show, and work with a world-class team of directors and performers. 


We are seeking Mandarin speaking boys, who sing, dance and act to play Young Simba.  Boys must be aged 8-11, and of a height between 127-145 cm (50” and 57”).  We encourage boys of all backgrounds to attend.
