This fun and exciting show is about a present day Aladdin who encounters an old lamp containg a comical Genie who wants to be free of the lamp.  In order to accomplish this, they must go back in time to ancient Baghdad where they encounter a beautiful princess, a sultan and the evil Grand Wazir.  The results are exciting and hilarious.  All students should bring a snack, a binder and pencil to all rehearsals.  Comfortable clothing is recommended.
