Project Description

Synopsis

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. With expanded characters, new songs, and more thrills, this new adaptation of the beloved story will open up “a whole new world” for your young performers!

Shane Webb

Director.

Shane has been involved in theatre since he was given the role of
Pirate #3 in Grade 7, and learned the unpleasant lesson that you
have to deliver your lines in order, and at the proper time, not just
when you feel like it. Developing a passion for the craft through
high school and university, Shane has gone on to hold almost every
position both on and offstage that he could find, including founding
his own theatre company. Recent highlights for Shane have seen
him playing Roo Webber in MTG’s Summer of the Seventeenth
Doll, and Billy Bigelow in QMT’s Carousel. When not involved in
a production, Shane has served as QLD Coordinator for Theatre
People for the past 2 years.
