Sand Creek Actors Schooled by Lion King Broadway Professional

Sand Creek Middle School student actors got a visit from Blaine Krauss, a New York City Broadway actor from the Lion King production, just in time for their staging of Lion King, Jr. May 5-7.

Krauss, who played Simba, came to do a workshop for Sand Creek's Cast n' Crew on Saturday, April 9th and gave them real Broadway acting tips. His appearance was sponsored by South Colonie Friends of Theatre Arts.

It was an exciting and wonderful experience for the students and adults to meet him and hear his advice and stories. He worked with as many students as he could to help them enhance and improve their acting knowledge.

It was a well timed and special event for these students as they have been working hard on rehearsing Lion King Jr since February. He worked with the Mufasa and Scar, the Hyannas and more. These students enjoyed this time with Blaine Krauss extremely and were amazed and impressed they had a real Broadway actor helping them and in there school.

Don't forget to get your tickets to see Lion King Jr at Sand Creek with real Broadway critiquing and expertise by an actual NYC Lion King actor, not the travelling production actor. He's the real Broadway Simba!
