PostHeaderIcon The Lion King’s Syndee Winters Talks Music and She Being Nala

Syndee Winters, the multi-talented singer, dancer and actress, has had a passion for the arts since she was an adolescent dreamer growing up in Miami.

The Lion King's Nala Syndee Winters

The Lion King's Nala Syndee Winters


The youngest of three children, the Palmetto High grad moved here from New York at age 13 to live with her father and grandmother. Now she returns to Miami as Nala in the Broadway tour of the Tony award-winning smash hit The Lion King, is currently performing at Ziff Opera House At The Adrienne Arsht Center and runs through June 10, 2012.

Chris Joseph of Miami New Times, spoke to Syndee about growing up in Miami, The Lion King, her solo career, and her unbridled excitement for being featured in Miami New Times. Read the interview below:

Syndee Winters: I remember being a kid in Miami and, going to college and picking up the New Times and going “Ah man! I wanna be in this publication! But I don’t know how, because I don’t know what I’m doing! This newspaper is so rad! There’s always stuff about musicians and artists and stuff that’s going on! How do I get into this thing?”

Cultist: And now you’re going to be featured in it!
So excited! I’m going to frame it!

Where did you study theatre?
Well, I attended Palmetto Senior and started dancing there, and when I graduated I joined several dance studios and did some auditions, and did a few music videos and did some background work for some reggeaton artists.

And from there you left Miami to New York?
Yeah. I figured, let me see what New York has to offer. I danced for the Knicks, then when my dancing days were over, I decided to continue my acting career and whanot and I was a wedding singer for a while. And then the audition for The Lion King came up in 2007 and I didn’t even get a call back.

Here I am thinking my dreams are gonna come true! This is it! I have hit it! Well that didn’t happen because I didn’t get a call back. And then in 2010, I got another call to come back for Nala, and then performed for them and did a couple of songs and, here I am! I’ve been on the tour for two years. I can honestly say I don’t ever get tired of it.

Have you always been into singing and theatre?
Oh I studied everything in high school. Chorus, dance, musicals. I was in every single extracurricular activity. I did stuff for Latin History month, even though I’m really not even Hispanic. If anyone was like, “Syndee you wanna do —” I’d be like, “Yes! I’ll do it!” Any time I got any opportunity to dance or perform I was like, I’m there.

And you pursued your dreams in New York not long after high school. What route did you take to get your career rolling?
Yeah. I was born in New York, and moved to Miami when 13. Getting back to New York, I was able to do auditions and network. When you go out on auditions you test the waters, see what fits, see where you belong, that kind of thing. There’s no formula. It’s just, when the time hits, you gotta be ready to do it. There’s nothing like the experience of going to auditions and being a part of it.

How does the stage version of The Lion King differ from the animated movie?
It’s very similar. You have your standard characters. You have your Simba, your Mufasa, your Scar. What differs is everything else. You’re going there expecting furry costumes and a jungle setting and that sort of thing. But that’s not at all the experience you’ll have. You will definitely have a full, culturally enriched experience. There’s so much African and Asian culture put into the show, lots of puppet work and you’ll be completely entertained. It’s not just for kids. The whole family will walk away fully entertained.

And this will be the first time you perform professionally in front of a major audience in Miami?
Yes! So excited! I can’t even tell you!

And what do you hope your adoptive hometown audiences take away from this show?
I hope they walk away with a sense of theatrical culture and appreciation. Respect for theatre and respect for the arts. There weren’t many musicals coming to Miami when I was growing up. Coming from New York, I understand that.

A lot of people are like, “I’m not a theatre person! I don’t like how you randomly break into song. That’s weird.” But there’s more to it than randomly breaking into song. There’s the visual aspects. And I think Lion King feeds that, especially in a mainstream, artistic, avant-garde type of way.

PostHeaderIcon Arsht Center Cleaning Up After Sunday’s Flooding – The Lion King To Play Tuesday

The Lion King musical will resume at the Arsht Center as scheduled Tuesday night, two days after a widespread ceiling leak forced “The Lion King” hero off the stage and sent the audience sloshing toward the exits.

Heavy rains cut the show short Sunday night, as the Arsht Center was evacuated because of flooding. The arts center said that flash flooding downtown caused a drain line to leak during the performance.

Arsht Center CEO and President John Richard said in a statement Monday that the cleanup was progressing as planned. He blamed a faulty pipe from the roof’s drainage system, saying that night’s downpour caused the rupture inside the Arsht’s Ziff Ballet Opera House. “The building is safe for patrons and Tuesday evening’s 8 p.m. performance of ‘The Lion King’ will be presented as scheduled,” he said.

Richard encourage ticket holders for Sunday’s show to call their original point of purchase or the Arsht Center’s box office at 786-468-2337 to exchange tickets for a future performance. Lion King Miami FL Tickets are available for shows through June 10.

PostHeaderIcon Disney’s “The Lion King” Roars Back to Miami

Lion King Broadway Tour will stop in Miami for four weeks from May 15 to June 10, 2012.

Lion King musical is all about the noble lion king Mufasa sacrifices his own life to save his headstrong young son Simba. Mufasa’s evil brother Scar commits fratricide and rules over a dying kingdom. Young love blossoms when Simba reencounters his boyhood friend Nala, then finds the brave purpose that would make his late father proud. The darker elements of The Lion King’s universally resonant story are the stuff of Greek tragedy, but the reliably moving musical glows with a hopeful ending and many moments of beauty, joy and the celebration of life.

For two of the cast members in the Lion King’s touring company, playing the Arsht Center means coming home. Syndee Winters, a Palmetto High graduate, is playing the adult Nala, a role she has coveted since she was a child.

Sharron Williams, a New World School of the Arts and Florida State University grad, plays multiple roles — a cheetah, a lioness, a wildebeest, a hyena and more. Both women trained as dancers and are thrilled to be performing in a show choreographed by Garth Fagan, a Tony-winning modern dance figure.

“When the show played South Florida before, I was in Miami but I couldn’t afford a ticket to see it,” says Winters, who plans to teach a class at her old high school while the show is at the Arsht. “When you come to see The Lion King, you suspend your disbelief. For the next two and a half hours, you belong to us. You could be the biggest, buffest guy, but when you hear Circle of Life, you’re affected. You get a lump in your throat. You get chills.”

Winters’ pal Williams, who will also teach a class while the show is in town, expects as many as 30 people in her extended family will see The Lion King during its Arsht run. For her, the show’s appeal is a combination of story, design, music and Fagan’s demanding choreography.

“When I first saw it, I laughed, I cried, I was touched in every way,” Williams says. “The work is challenging. The beat of the drums, the costumes, the music — they make you feel fierce. I get excited every time.”
