A Promise to Cast Every Child

Plot Summary:
Welcome to Agrabah, City of Enchantment, where every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail! All of your favorite characters are here in Disney's ALADDIN JR., a stage adaptation of the Disney hit film. Filled with magic, mayhem, and flying carpet rides, audiences' spirits will soar with excitement. Most of all, the tuneful, Academy award-winning score with songs including "A Whole New World" and "Friend Like Me" will certainly make this musical a favorite for many years to come!

Character Breakdown:
ALADDIN: Charming, dynamic, excellent singer, must be a versatile actor that can play the funny, slick prankster as well as the romantic lead.

GENIE :Fast talking, scene stealing funnyman, does not need to be a strong singer and dancer, the ability to do comedy is much more important.

JASMINE: feisty, rebellious, yet genuinely sweet and somewhat naïve, excellent singer

IAGO: does not need to be a strong singer, comedic skills are a must.

JAFAR: our villain. Must be menacing but also comedic.

SULTAN: The Sultan should be able to play a parental figure convincingly. Although a bit scattered, they need to be able to portray love and care for Jasmine. Solo singing is not required for this role.

NARRATORS: singing and ability to speak clearly is required, comedic skills a plus

GUARDS: good comedic skills and ability to carry a tune, The Guards are played as highly incompetent – always making mistakes

MAGIC CARPET: great with movement and dance, gymnastic skills a plus, chorus singing

ENSEMBLE: Royal Family, Suitors, Townspeople, Shop Owners. Good actors who sing and dance well. Featured in all of the production numbers. Opportunities for many featured moments and lines for ensemble characters.

Auditions: April 17th 11am
