Casting has been announced for the Minneapolis engagement of Disney’s The Lion King. The sardonic and deviously cunning “Scar” is played by J. Anthony Crane, who grew up in Minneapolis and whose family still lives in the Twin Cities. Dionne Randolph is “Mufasa,” the great warrior and ruler of the Pridelands. Buyi Zama is the wise baboon shaman “Rafiki.” Mark David Kaplan portrays the prim and proper hornbilled bird “Zazu.” Ben Lipitz is the carefree warthog “Pumbaa.” Nick Cordileone, who went to grade school in Minneapolis and Brooklyn Park, is the wisecracking meerkat “Timon.” Mufasa’s son, “Simba,” the lion prince born to be king, is played by Jelani Remy and Syndee Winters is the loyal lioness “Nala.”

The three evil hyenas are played by Omari Tau (“Banzai”), Monica L. Patton (“Shenzi”) and Ben Roseberry (“Ed”). The role of “Young Simba” is alternated between Niles Fitch and Zavion J. Hill and the role of “Young Nala” is alternated between Sade Phillip-Demorcy and Kailah McFadden.

The North American touring production of The Lion King has been seen by over 13.5 million theatergoers and grossed over $875 million to date. The world premiere of The Lion King played a key role in solidifying Minneapolis as a major player in the Broadway marketplace, and the city, home to the Hennepin Theatre District, maintains its reputation as a premier locale for the hottest Broadway shows.

Lion King will perform through February 12, 2012 in Minneapolis MN. Lion King Orpheum Theatre MN Tickets selling like hot cakes. Buy Lion King Minneapolis MN Tickets today. Get $10 OFF on Orders over $350! Use Code AFF$10. Use Code HOL2011 for FREE SHIPPING.
