Disney’s Aladdin, Jr. @ Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre
Children nowadays, particularly in the millennial era, no longer acknowledge classic cartoon shows which are loved by the older generations especially Walt Disney Classics. Aladdin, Jasmine, Genie, and all other casts from the movie
“Aladdin” are just some of the forgotten characters. Our theatrical team organized “Disney: Aladdin, Jr.” to break the
barrier and to rekindle the excitement felt by the older generations and pass it on to the newer generations as they
watch a lively, well-choreographed musical performance.
The animated film “Aladdin” received an Academy Award-winning score during its glory days, so why not bring that
score back in the theatrical stage?
The team chose “Aladdin” because they strongly believe that the audience will surely experience ‘a whole new world’ as they witness a magical journey while imagining a ride on a flying carpet. A musical play packed with love, friendship, and adventure is about to capture your hearts this coming October.
The story is about a homeless-pick- pocket boy named Aladdin. He had no relatives or friends other than his monkey
named Abu. He wanted to seek attention with Agrabah’s Princess Jasmine by pretending to be a prince with the help of Genie for them to get married. Jafar, Iago, the King of Agrabah, and many more characters will also be present in the very much awaited musical.
