Disney Theatrical Group has chosen the YMCA theatre group of 4/5 graders at WI to perform the Lion King Kids, a 40 minute version for elementary aged performers. The Family YMCA at Tarrytown is the producer of the elementary school version; Peter Royston is the Director. Disney has chosen the Y - along with Harlem School for the Arts - to test this new adaptation of the Lion King before releasing to other schools to perform.
Choreography by Katherine Wood. Featuring colorful costumes and scenery by Elizabeth Royston and Vera Zamdmer, set pieces by Michael, Ethan & Ellie Fox, Scott, Tess & Zoe Kaplan, and Joe, Joanne & Luke Johnson. Over 100 children are in the cast and crew.
The Y gratefully acknowledges the support of the Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns, The MHV Foundation and the Kids' Club.
