Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Howard Ashman & Tim Rice
Following on from previous successful summer musicals like Seussical, The Sound of Music and Peter Pan, award-winning directors Brian and Seán Power have again gathered together a very talented young group to produce one of Disney’s favourite musicals.
Aladdin takes us to the city of Agrabah and it is amongst the stalls in the market that we meet the title character,
stealing food to avoid starving and putting him at odds with the local law enforcement. The evil sorcerer Jafar has Aladdin arrested and is subsequently thrown into a cave where he discovers the magic lamp and a Genie who grants him 3 wishes. As the story progresses he turns the tide on Jafar, hoping to save Agrabah and win the heart of Princess Jasmine.
Aladdin features some super toe-tapping musical numbers including Prince Ali,
A Whole New World and Friend Like Me so fans of the original film will feel right at home!
Duration 80 minutes, no Interval.
