DISNEY’S ALADDIN (Kids version)

Auditions: Tuesday, August 20th, 4:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m.

What to bring: Yourself! We will do readings from the script. Everyone needs to sing aloud on their own. (One minute from a Disney show is ideal but Happy Birthday works too!) We will also have a movement audition. This is an entry level experience so it will be very low key and fun.

Rehearsals: Tuesdays, (starting August 27th) from 4:30-6:00 p.m.  Principal roles will also meet on Thursdays (starting August 29th) 4:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m.  Two Saturday rehearsals:  October 26th 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m and November 2nd 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

Performances: Friday, November 8th (7:30 p.m. ) Saturday, November 9th (11:00 a.m.) Friday, November 15th (7:30 p.m. ) and Saturday, November 16th (11:00 a.m.)

Roles available:

Aladdin- Aladdin, a poor street urchin, longs to do the right thing, but sometimes loses his way. He’s the thief with a heart of gold, so cast your most charismatic actor with the versatility to play both the playful prankster and caring lead. Make sure he has the vocal chops to carry this heavy- singing role.

Genie- Genie is the fun-loving, scene-stealing wisecracker who lives in the lamp and yearns to be free. Genie doesn’t need to be your strongest singer or dancer – look for an actor with great comic timing and a flashy and fun sense of showmanship.

Iago- Iago is the fawning and funny parrot and sidekick to Jafar. With only a few lyrics to sing, focus on finding an actor who can execute this lackey’s many sarcastic asides with comedic flair.

Jafar- Jafar is the power-hungry and crooked Royal Vizier. Cast a strong actor who can sing (or speak in rhythm) and portray both sides of Jafar’s two- faced personality – loyal advisor to the Sultan and scheming villain – as well as pull off delicious comedic moments with his lackey Iago.

Jasmine- Jasmine, the Princess of Agrabah, longs to experience the world outside the palace walls. Curious and assertive, she knows what she wants and craves the freedom to create change and help the people of her kingdom. Cast a strong actor and singer who can portray both the caring lead and a young woman caught between her responsibilities to her people and to herself.

Gender: Female

Lamp Vendor- The Lamp Salesman is a likeable fast-talking vendor who serves as the principal storyteller in our show. The student playing this role should be comfortable onstage and have a clear speaking voice.

Sultan- Sultan, the warm-hearted ruler who dotes on his daughter, is committed to upholding the ancient laws of Agrabah. Focus on finding an actor who can play this father figure convincingly.

Ensemble- The Ensemble includes Djinn, magical theatrical spirits of the lamp; Agrabahns, citizens of Agrabah; palace Guards; hungry Beggars in the marketplace; Skeletons of past prisoner of the royal dungeon; and Prince Ali’s Entourage.

Bread Vendor- Bread Vendor is an aggravated seller in the marketplace from whom Aladdin steals.

Fruit Vendor- Fruit Vendor is a friendly merchant in the marketplace.

Prince Abdullah- Prince Abdullah, Prince Hassim, and Prince Malik are the royal suitors who aspire to marry Jasmine. These pompous princes are more interested in becoming Sultan than getting to know the Princess, so cast three actors who can humorously convey different levels of clichéd coolness.

Prince Hassim- Prince Abdullah, Prince Hassim, and Prince Malik are the royal suitors who aspire to marry Jasmine. These pompous princes are more interested in becoming Sultan than getting to know the Princess, so cast three actors who can humorously convey different levels of clichéd coolness.

Gender: Male

Prince Malik- Prince Abdullah, Prince Hassim, and Prince Malik are the royal suitors who aspire to marry Jasmine. These pompous princes are more interested in becoming Sultan than getting to know the Princess, so cast three actors who can humorously convey different levels of clichéd coolness.

Gender: Male

Cave Guardian- The Cave Guardian is the ominous guard who instructs Aladdin to touch only the lamp.

Gender: Any

Avis- Avis, a magical flying carpet,
