The UP Red Cross Youth is selling tickets for the November 24th (8:00 PM) showing of Disney’s ALADDIN at Meralco Theatre!
Aladdin might not be my favorite Disney movie (it’s a toss coin between Beauty and the Beast and Mulan) but it’s certainly the one that can trigger a lot of happy/sad memories of my childhood. Of all the songs from Disney movies, Aladdin’s A Whole New World is probably the only one that can make me shed a few tears. My dad and I used to sing this every night before I go to be when I was little. He’d sing Aladdin’s part and I put on my best falsetto for Jasmine’s and then he’d kiss me goodnight so I could go to sleep. /tears
After the success of it’s productions of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 2005 and Disney’s The Little Mermaid last year, Atlantis Productions proudly announces that it has been handpicked by Disney Theatricals to stage the Asian premiere of it’s newest stage musical Disney’s ALADDIN.
Get a chance to see this musical before it’s brought to Broadway!
The musical is based on the much loved animated film. It tells the story of a street-smart commoner whose whole life changes with one rub of a magic lamp. The brand new romantic musical adventure incorporates all the beloved songs from the film’s Oscar®-winning score and brings some of the movie’s most memorable characters to life. Jafar, Iago, the Sultan, the Genie and of course Aladdin and Jasmine come together to create a whole new world of magical musical theatre for the whole family.
Disney’s ALADDIN features music by eight time Oscar Award winner Alan Menken and Lyrics by Oscar Award winner Howard Ashman, Oscar Award winner Tim Rice, and Tony Award nominated lyricist Chad Beguelin (who also wrote the brand new book of the musical)
