Such a Dela-proud story!

A ten year old boy from Newark made his debut as young Simba on the touring version of Broadway’s musical ‘The Lion King. When Charlie Kahler was 6, he saw the musical and turned to his mom and said “Mama, I think I can do that. Actually, I think I can do it better.” After four years of performing at The Delaware Children’s Theatre, Wilmington Drama League, The Candlelight Dinner Theatre and others, Charlie has come full circle. Charlie made his debut in Cincinnati. He will travel to more cities such as South Bend and Denver through August. No local shows are scheduled.
