PostHeaderIcon The Lion King Musical Return to Montreal – August 19 to September 07, 2014

The Lion King Musical returned to Montreal QC Canada for extended engagement from August 19 to September 07, 2014. Montreal does not get a lot of Broadway musicals, especially those which stay more than a week. Three years ago Disney’s The Lion King came here for a month and sold out every performance at the Place des Arts.

“It’s a tall pole puppet in the I Just Can’t Wait to be King number,” explained Kendra Moore, an Edmonton-born member of the touring cast from 2003-2008 who now acts as tour dance captain, teaching various roles to newcomers and filling in for dancers who are indisposed. “I remember the first time I did it. I couldn’t believe that the girls were doing it and not the men. The pole fits into a pole belt. The pole is quite heavy and you have to bend with it to balance it correctly. You can hurt your back if you don’t hold it properly. Some dancers have dropped it. One time, my pole belt broke, which has happened to others, too.”

Moore’s favourite role among the 11 Lion King roles that she teaches and can perform is the Cheetah.

“The Cheetah stands out on stage in the opening number,” she said in an interview from Washington, D.C. “It’s such a beautiful puppet. It’s fun to do, too. When I get into that puppet, I think about what a cheetah looks like and how it feels to move like a cheetah. I really try to become a cheetah!”

It’s unlikely that Moore was thinking in cheetah terms as a member of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal for three years in the 1990s when the company was led by Yvan Michaud. For an Alberta-born and trained dancer in her 20s, the tours with Les Ballets Jazz were memorable experiences.

“The company was small, only 12 dancers. We could fit in all kinds of theatres. I got to go to places — like China — I never would have imagined.”

The Lion King musical in Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier of Place des Arts from August 19 to September 07, 2014. Hurry up to book the best Lion King Montreal QC Canada Tickets.
