When The Lion King Broadway crosses the country, it is not an easy feat – especially when it requires recreating Africa in a new city every few weeks.

The following Pictures how hard the Crews working to set up for the Lion King at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City, Utah, Friday, Aug. 6, 2010. The production will be in Salt Lake City for 7 weeks starting from August 11 through September 26, 2010.

Disney’s “The Lion King,” one of Broadway’s award-winning musicals, is set to open at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City next week. But before then, about 100 workers will spend more than 75 hours setting up the landscape.

“The show runs very nicely, and we’ve got a great crew,” said Michael Carey, head carpenter for “The Lion King’s” national tour.

“The Lion King” has a very successful history. The original movie premiered in 1994. The musical opened on Broadway in 1997 and earned six Tony Awards. The touring company has entered its second decade of sold-out shows.

Since 2002, Carey’s life has been full of lions, hyenas and music.

He has to essentially juggle and coordinate for two productions at the same time. While he is in Utah setting up shop, the rest of his crew is in Vancouver for the show’s final week there. The set he’s working on now will be sent to Norfolk, Va., after its run here. The set in Vancouver will travel to Chicago.

“Usually by the time we’re in the act of putting the show on here, I’m already working on the next city,” Carey said. “They see me pulling my hair out and looking a little stressed, but I’m not stressed for here. I’m stressed about the next city.”

Despite everything, he’s still smiling — his vacation is next week.

Casting has been announced for the Salt Lake City engagement of Disney’s The Lion King. Salt Lake City’s most eagerly awaited stage production ever will leap onto the Capitol Theatre stage from Wednesday, August 11 to Sunday, September 26, 2010. The press opening night is Friday, August 13 at 8:00 pm.

The engagement has already sold more than 83,000 tickets and generated more than $6.5 million at the box office. Even with all this success, there are still seats available with the best locations in the weeknight and Sunday performances during the last two weeks. Patrons are encouraged to contact the Capitol Theatre Box Office for availability at 801.355.5502.

On stage, Director Julie Taymor’s creative vision blends elements of African art and Broadway artisanship to depict anthropomorphic animal characters. The sardonic and deviously cunning “Scar” is played by J. Anthony Crane. Dionne Randolph is “Mufasa,” the great warrior and ruler of the Pridelands. Brenda Mhlongo is the wise baboon shaman “Rafiki.” Tony Freeman portrays the prim and proper hornbilled bird “Zazu.” Ben Lipitz is the carefree warthog “Pumbaa” and Nick Cordileone is the wisecracking meerkat “Timon.” Mufasa’s son, “Simba,” the lion prince born to be king, is played by Adam Jacobs 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 Jerome Stephen, Jr. and Kolton Stewart and the role of “Young Nala” is alternated between Monique Lee and Madai Monica Williams.

The North American touring production of The Lion King has been seen by over 12.5 million theatergoers and grossed over $815 million to date. The tour is one of seven productions running worldwide, along with New York City, London, Hamburg, Paris, Tokyo and Las Vegas. Having already played 60 cities across North America, The Lion King continues to entertain audiences in new cities.

In Salt Lake City, The Lion King will play Tuesday through Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm; Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm; and Sunday at 6:30 pm with matinees at 2:00 pm on Saturday; Sunday at 1:00 pm; and Thursday, August 12 and Friday, September 24 at 2:00 pm. There will not be a 6:30pm performance on Sunday, September 26. There will be a special matinee performance on Wednesday, August 18 at 2:00pm to benefit The Actors Fund. Ticket prices start as low as $37.50. Premium Ticket Packages, which include prime seat locations, a commemorative souvenir program and an exclusive merchandise item, are also available.

Tickets are still on sale for the touring Broadway production of “The Lion King” that will be coming to Salt Lake’s Capitol Theatre August 11 through September 26. The cheapest tickets hover around the $74.00 range (not including fees) and are easier to get the later you’re willing to go in the run. The more expensive seats will run you about $135.00.

Of course, it’s also quite reasonable to wonder why all of the seats didn’t get sold out. Part of it is the show’s immensely long run, which they probably did pre-emptively due to the success of “Wicked” early last year. Several said that it compared poorly to previous productions of “The Lion King,” including some the reviewers had seen on tour, as well as specific mentions of the poor singing.
