Often I photograph opening night of shows and concerts, but it is rare to get behind the scenes access. Access to national theatrical performances is even more unique. Recently, I had the opportunity to spend some time in the afternoon with cast members - Pumbaa and Rafiki - of The Lion King. Later, I was invited backstage to photograph them preparing for the show in the make-up room. Here are a couple of pictures of Rafiki. If you would like to read about The Lion King stars' experiences in the City of Greenville and watch the video (shot by John Olson), click here. And the gallery of photos can be viewed here.
