London and UK Tour Children’s Casting

Disney’s THE LION KING is always looking for young performers to play the roles of Young Simba and Nala - brave, athletic and energetic lion cubs - in the West End and on tour across the UK and Ireland.

The production’s Cub Academy is a free training programme that develops skills in acting, movement and singing to prepare emerging talent to potentially audition to play these roles professionally. Gaining a place in Cub Academy does not guarantee a part in the show, however it has proven to be excellent training experience for young people with an ambition to work on stage.

Audition applicants must be…

  • Aged between 9 and 11
  • Below 140cm (4’6”) in height
  • Be educated and live in the UK
