A CST Family production best enjoyed by ages 5 and up
Disney’s Aladdin is presented in the Jentes Family Auditorium.
When street urchin Aladdin meets Princess Jasmine by chance in the marketplace, they are both running away—Aladdin from the Royal Guards who think he’s stolen a loaf of bread, and Jasmine from the Palace where she must choose a husband. Vizier Jafar, with the help of Iago, his scheming parrot, is determined to keep them in their proper place and gain control of the kingdom. By using his wits, and with the help of a magic carpet, a lamp and Genie, Aladdin saves the kingdom. Genie also helps him learn the meaning of friendship and the importance of being yourself.
