Lion King

Alton Fitzgerald White and Kissy Simmons two of the cast members from Disney’s The Lion King Broadway show were in Disney World this week to perform as part of the Broadway Concert Series at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts and took some time out to meet with the incredible cast of the Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom.

Check out this video of members from both casts meeting up:

For those heading to Walt Disney World this week, the Disney on Broadway series runs Fridays through Mondays during the Epcot International Festival of the Arts.  The last week of the Festival 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 starred in the role of Belle in Disney’s Beauty & the Beast on Broadway.

The Disney on Broadway Concert Series is included in the cost of Epcot admission with performances taking place at the American Gardens Theatre at 5:30, 6:45 and 8pm.
