Lion King Jr. Cast Interview with John Schuessler!

SDP is thrilled to be working with John Schuessler in Lion King Jr. Check out the SDP Actor Interview below and mark your calendars to see Lion King Jr, May 3-13!

Q: What was your first experience with the Lion King story?

A: The first time I remember the Lion King story was when my grandmother gave me tickets to go see it on tour. I was about five and went with my aunt and cousin in South Carolina. It was amazing and I loved the sets and costumes.

Q:  Why do you think people relate to Lion King?

A: When you're a kid you think being a grown up will be real freedom. "When I'm a grown up I will be able to do whatever I want."  But it changes when you get just a little older and you begin to think that kids are the ones who have more freedom.

Q:  What has the story of Lion King taught you?

A: Hakuna Matata! It's all gonna be cool.  Also it taught me to rely on friends in a time of need.
