The Lion King’s, Nia Halloway who plays Nala and Dashun Young, who plays the older Simba, joined New Mexico Living to talk about their experiences in being part of the national touring show.
Nia stressed that conditioning outside of the show is as important as the work on the show.
Dashun added, “And there’s a lot of preparation. like once you’re at the show.”
In addition to the athleticism of the performance, the show is unique because there are so many of the cast who have been on the show for years, creating a family environment. With the message of the show being about family, it all comes together.
The Lion King will be playing for two more weeks at Popejoy Hall, tickets are still available.
