Kate Solomon-Tilley, Child Wrangler on Broadway

Kate Solomon-Tilley is an alumna of Ecole Bilingue (Class of 2001). She works as a Child Wrangler (or Child Guardian) for Disney’s Lion King on Broadway. A child wrangler is a stage manager for the child actors who work in the show playing Young Simba and Young Nala. Wranglers, like stage managers, help make sure the actors get to their cues on time, remember lines, and ensure their costumes and makeup are stage-ready. When not working at the Lion King, she works as a freelance stage manager, often on developing musicals on and off Broadway, and as a personal assistant to the legendary villain Jafar from Aladdin. She has been child wrangling for  “What the Constitution Means to Me,” an American play by Heidi Schreck that premiered on Broadway in 2019.
