Tickets go on sale Monday, October 22 for Stage Center’s School of Performing Arts production of Disney’s Aladdin Jr., with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice, & Chad Beguelin, and a book by Chad Beguelin.
Jared Watson directs, Katie Lerchie choreographs, and musical direction is by Mary Kate McLaurine. The story you know and love has been given the royal treatment! Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character. Based on the 1992 Academy-Award®-winning film, Disney’s Aladdin Jr., featuring all of the songs from the movie like “A Whole New World”, and all-new songs from the 2014 hit Broadway show, is about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.
