Aladdin




This Disney-produced musical comedy is based on the original animated classic.


Story:

Poor hooligan Aladdin has big aspirations -- he dreams of a life in the palace with his beloved Princess Jasmine. When he chances upon a lamp that holds an entrapped genie, Aladdin is allowed to experience the life he’s always imagined. As he matures from boy to man, Aladdin is forced into decisions that will affect both his future and the futures of others.
