The Delaware high school choir got a big surprise during their Disney Performing Arts workshop at Walt Disney World Resort when Broadway stars Kissy Simmons and Alton Fitzgerald White stopped by for a Q&A session with the group.
Simmons and White, former stars of the Broadway hit The Lion King, popped in on the Cape Henlopen High School students while they were participating in a performing arts workshop at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort Friday, Jan. 26 2018.
Simmons and White, who starred as “Nala’’ and “Mufasa’’, respectively, on Broadway, spent time with the students, answering questions and sharing advice on achieving their dreams as young performers.
Simmons made her Broadway debut in “The Lion King” and reprised her role in 2009 during the Las Vegas production. White originated the role of “Mufasa” in the national tour of “The Lion King,” in 2002 and in the Las Vegas production in 2009.
