The cast and crew of both “Festival of the Lion King,” and “Finding Nemo – The Musical” both have been hit hard during this time of social distancing.
Unfortunately, the list doesn’t stop at those two fan-favorites. According to Monorail News, the full list of shows in which the casts have been laid off include:
Citizens of Hollywood
Citizens of Main Street
Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor
Festival of the Lion King
Finding Nemo — The Musical
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review
Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage
It’s uncertain if these shows are temporarily disbanded or if they are going dark. More Equity actors are being informed of layoffs even beyond the listed shows. Hopefully the end of the pandemic will shed a new spotlight on these shows.
