Description:

Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.

The story you know and love has been given the royal treatment! Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character.

Agrabahns

Agrabahns Agrabahns are the citizens of Agrabah who help to create the bustling marketplace – merchants, shoppers, beggars, guards, etc. Included in this ensemble are the following featured roles: • The Beggars (3) are a small group with whom Aladdin briefly interacts. Feel free to cast more beggars than the three who have scripted lines. • The Apple Vendor is a merchant who reviles the beggars and from whom Jasmine unintentionally steals an apple. • The Fortune Teller unwittingly helps Aladdin escape the guards in “One Jump Ahead.” • The Shop Owner is a marketplace vendor from whom Aladdin steals bread. • Razoul, the rough and commanding head of the palace guards, answers to Jafar. Cast a performer who can portray an intimidating leader. • The Guards (2) follow Razoul’s orders. While there are only two speaking roles, feel free to include as many additional guards as you like in your production, who can help Razoul defend the palace during “High Adventure.”

Prince Abdullah
