February 7, 2015 – Aladdin – Missoula Children’s Theatre 

AladdinFor Aladdin, it’s not easy to find a magic lamp, but it’s even harder to get a date! It’s a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade and even Sinbad the Sailor as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a Cave of (not-so-great) Wonders. Along his way, Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise Genies, a powerful Sultan, and even his own Mother to find a way to meet the Princess. However, even with the lamp in hand, Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more than a wish to make a good impression. Missoula Children’s Theatre will audition, cast, rehearse with, and perform this original musical featuring 50-60 local K-12 youth.
