I recently got some very exciting news. I have just been added to the Cheetah Company National Tour of Disney’s “THE LION KING!” I left for Houston, Texas yesterday and will be starting rehearsals in a few days. Until then, I will just be watching the show each chance I get.For all of my frustrated actors out there….I was totally shocked that I got this call because I auditioned for THE LION KING in Atlanta about 3 years ago and never heard anything back from them. Then about 3 months ago, DISNEY called my agent and I flew to New York to auditon for one of the tours. I got back home and was told that I did not get the part…but I was next in line if the girl they offered it to turned it down.So I put it out of my mind (as we performers tend to do so we don’t go crazy thinking about every audition) then all of a sudden a week and a half ago…I get a call saying they wanted me…and I had to be ready to leave on July 5th.So…every Casting Director isn’t lying when they tell you that they’re going to keep your headshot on file. It took three years…but I’m HERE!I’ll post my touring cities for the next year on my EVENTS page…maybe if you’re nearby, you can check us out!By the way…I’ve been cast in the ensemble as a singer and I also understudy the female leads, NALA and SARABI.
