Cast from The Lion King Broadway show recently visited Walt Disney World and of course visited the “Festival of the Lion King” show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Kissy, best known for playing Nala in the Broadway show and Alton, who played Mufasa, took time out of their busy schedule performing at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts as part of the Disney on Broadway series.
The Disney on Broadway series runs Fridays through Mondays during the Festival and during the last two weekends of the Festival – February 9-12 and February 16-19 – will feature Josh Strickland, the original lead from Disney’s Tarzan and Ashley Brown, who starred in the original Broadway production of Disney’s Mary Poppins.
Ashley also portrayed Belle in Disney’s Beauty & the Beast on Broadway.
All Disney on Broadway shows are included in theme park admission and take place at the America Gardens Theatre at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. Broadway fans can book dining packages that include guaranteed seating for a show and a meal.
