THE LION KING international tour has just arrived in our Singapore shores, and the cast has taken their excitement to Instagram on gala premiere night.
Seen by over 90 million people around the world and winner of over 70 major international theatre awards, this spectacular musical brings together one of the most innovative creative teams on Broadway.
With Beyoncé, Elton John and Hans Zimmer part of the cast for the remake of Disney’s animated film The Lion King (2019), we’re paying attention to the stellar cast of The Lion King Musical as well.
Singapore audiences will be treated to extraordinary performances by a talented and diverse international cast from around the world.
The cast of fifty-one is comprised of the cream of THE LION KING performers, including veterans of the acclaimed London, Las Vegas, Australian and Hamburg productions.
Here are some great posts by the cast of The Lion King Musical on the night of the Singapore gala premiere:
Jonathan Andrew Hume, reappearing to reprise his role of Simba after his last Singapore leg in 2011:
THE MASK | "Hello old friend!" It's so nice to be back in Singapore, although I don't know what day or time it is as jet-lag has me in it's grip. Currently I'm in the Puppets department as they're attaching my head-pull to the mask and making sure the alignment is correct. It's a long process to get it just right, but for it to be perfect, it has to be. It's been a long day, and there's a very long day tomorrow to look forward to. I'm going to have an early night tonight 😴 #HumeInSingapore #TheLionKingSG #LionKingInternational #MichaelCasselGroup
