I am so excited to take my kids to see Disney’s Aladdin JR. at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati in a couple weeks! They are hearing all about the show at school, since that is their school play this year. Plus, they love the Disney animated version.
I, on the other hand, am super excited because I always love to catch a performance by Bob Herzog. In this production, he plays the hilarious and over the top Genie. I cannot wait! He has cracked us all up in other shows, so I am sure this one will be no different.
Here’s what Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati has to say about the show:
Carpets will fly this April at the Taft Theatre!
The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati ends its 90th MainStage Season with DISNEY’S ALADDIN JR., April 10-12 and 18, 2015 at the Taft Theatre. The show will be directed by Roderick Justice. Music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. Book adapted and additional lyrics by Jim Luigs. Music adapted and arranged by Bryan Louiselle. Based on the screenplay by Ron Clements and John Musker; Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio.
Aladdin is a street rat who must borrow and steal to survive. When he runs into Princess Jasmine the day before her arranged wedding, they begin an unlikely friendship. In captivity, Aladdin finds a magical lamp revealing a Genie who grants wishes. Just wait till what happens next! This show will take you to “A Whole New World.”
DISNEY’S ALADDIN JR. is a collaboration with The Cincinnati Circus Company, who will bring jugglers,aerial acrobats, stilt walkers and more to the Taft Theatre stage! And, Local 12’s Bob Herzog will be featured as the Genie!
