Ring bells! Bang the drums! Are you gonna love this exciting stage adaptation of the legendary tale of the lovable thief with the heart of gold! Join Aladdin (RJ Arlan), Jasmine (Sabrina Wrachford), and the fast-talking, wisecracking Genie (Grace Rogers) as they discover mystical caves, take magic carpet rides, and outwit the evil sorcerer, Jafar (Cristian Colorado).  The musical includes favorite Alan Menken songs such as “Friend Like Me,” “A Whole New World,” and “Prince Ali,” as well as wonderful new songs and colorful new friends added for the Broadway production.  The cast boasts 38 incredibly talented youth from ages 8 to 18 who have lent their talents to the stage, as well as to publicity and choreography for the show.

Aladdin JR. is directed by Christine Smith, with musical director from Melanie Bales, and assistant director Kelly Dolan.  This trio has worked together to lead many POPs blockbuster shows over the past three years, including Willy Wonka Jr, POPs Magical Music of Disney, and The Little Mermaid Jr.  Other lead production team members include Morgan England (stage manager), Lisa Dolan (choreographer), Anne Rogers (costumer), Gary Hughes (light design), Josh Bales (sound design), and Maggie Smith (props).

Aladdin JR. will run February 15th-24th, with evening performances (7PM) on Fridays and Saturdays and matinee performances (2PM) on Saturdays and Sundays.  All performances will be held at the Camp Foster Community Center Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for youth (ages 3-HS students) and $10 for adults.  Tickets can be purchased in advance at  www.pacificokinawaplayers.org.  Remaining seats will be sold at the door while supplies last.  The box office opens 1.5 hours before the show time.
