Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School hosts performances of the popular musical, Aladdin, Jr. this evening, Friday, March 22, and tomorrow, Saturday, March 23. Both performances start at 7 p.m. The production, directed by Laura Gladd, is based on the 1992 film Disney film Aladdin with lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.
Gladd is assisted by Heather Saia and Jennifer Skelly.
The story takes place in Agrabah, City of Enchantment, where every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail — or tale! Filled with magic, mayhem, and flying carpet rides, audiences’ spirits will soar with excitement. And the tuneful, Academy award-winning score with songs including “A Whole New World” and ”Friend Like Me” will certainly make this musical a favorite.
A cast and crew of more than 70 sixth, seventh and eighth, grade students presents this enchanting and memorable musical for all ages. All are welcome and tickets are available for $7 general admission in advance at The Bowerbird, 46 Halls Rd., in the Old Lyme Marketplace or at the door on the night of the performances.
