Students in Grades PreK through 12 this school year: Join us for our Youth Theatre Companies and Jr. Troupe musical: Disney’s Aladdin Jr.!
Disney’s Aladdin Jr. is based on the 1992 Academy Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.
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. With expanded characters, new songs, and more thrills, this new adaptation of the beloved story will open up “a whole new world” for you!
There are three ways for students to participate onstage in Disney’s Aladdin Jr.:
- Jr. Companies – All students in grades PreK-K and 1-2, performing in a couple of scenes and a magical pre-show! No audition required. Monday rehearsals only until tech.
- Companies – Students in grades 3-5 and 6-12, playing various Ensemble and Featured roles. Auditions are encouraged but not required; everyone is welcome! Monday rehearsals only until tech.
- Jr. Troupe – Selected students in grades 3-12, playing Supporting and Lead roles (Character descriptions and the script will be provided in advance.) Auditions required; everyone will be cast in either the Companies or Jr. Troupe! Rehearsals throughout the week as called.
For our Jr. Companies, we will be having a fully licensed, board-certified Music Therapist who will be meeting with a selected group of PreK-2nd grade students for the first half hour of the program. Using music, this Music Therapist will be teaching the students self-regulation techniques to deal with stress, aversions, and roadblocks to success that they may be having in the classroom. Students will then carry these interventions into the classroom for the remaining 45 minutes, with the Music Therapist available and floating between the classrooms to observe and help. The Music Therapist will also observe and meet with PreK-2nd grade staff members to assess and assist them with their classroom management and intervention skills as well!
Please select “YES” on the Music Therapy option on the Registration Form: Grades PreK-2 (link coming soon) to indicate your interest in your student participating in this program. Note that it does not cost anything extra and will not change your student’s role in the show in any way! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
