The Lion King Jr. Cast List & Important Info.
Thank you to the amazing students at MGMS who auditioned for The Lion King Jr. -- we were overwhelmed by the talent, preparation, and growth that we saw in each student. A record 144 students auditioned this year, with close to 100 trying out for Lead Parts. Our casting team had the difficult job of filling 15 roles, and literally could have cast 7 different shows with the talent we experienced. As it is, we double cast the show and added an extra hyena lead character for a total of 32 speaking parts.
PLEASE NOTE: All students will perform EVERY night. Lead Parts are double cast but we have not yet decided who is in which cast and what night they will perform.
DON'T PANIC: We will give more details on what each animal group wears and what numbers they are in ...hang in there until our first rehearsal! Every part will be featured and has amazing costumes!
GROUPME GROUPS: Are coming ... all info will be communicated via this website and GroupMe.
