Ring bells! Bang the drums! Are you gonna love this exciting stage adaptation of the legendary tale of the lovable thief with the heart of gold! Join Aladdin, Jasmine, and the fast-talking, wisecracking Genie as they discover mystical caves, take magic carpet rides, and outwit the evil sorcerer, Jafar. Adapted especially for young performers, this musical includes favorite Alan Menken songs such as “Friend Like Me,” “A Whole New World,” and “Prince Ali,” as well as wonderful new songs added for the Broadway production. With new, colorful characters and non-stop adventure, Aladdin JR. is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all ages!

Mrs. Schultz selected this production for the theater department because she feels that the moral of the story is relatable to middle school students. The story relates the importance of relationships and how people can help one another to achieve a goal. This is the sixth production for the Bridge Street Middle School theater department, and it will feature students in grades six, seven, and eight. Mrs. Schultz and her students look forward to sharing this musical adventure!
