Rubicon Theatre Company Goes on a Magical Flying Carpet Ride with the Summer Youth Production of Disney's Aladdin JR.
By: Rubicon Theatre Company
In Agrabah, City of Enchantment, every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail. Aladdin, a kind but wily street urchin, falls in love with beautiful Princess Jasmine. It just so happens that the Sultan has declared that Princess Jasmine must choose a husband the next day. After she turns down offers from various wealthy suitors, Aladdin and the evil Jafar duke it out for Jasmine's love. With a little help from a wacky genie, Aladdin manages to win Jasmine's hand in marriage.
Associate Artistic Director and Director of the Education and Outreach Programs Brian McDonald describes Aladdin JR., as "a delightful one-hour version of the Disney musical that is certain to entertain the entire family. We are having so much fun putting this show together and look forward to sharing it with our audiences."
