The Prince Street Players Version
This fable uses flavors from the Far East to tell the household story of an urchin, his lamp, his genie, and his love.
From the Prince Street Players, the experts in Theatre for Young Audiences, comes this magical and mystical retelling of Aladdin with all of the wonder of the original.
Using the art of Ancient Chinese Staging, an all-knowing and all-seeing Stage Manager and his two Assistants tell the story of Aladdin -- an "idle rag-a-muffin," kite flying enthusiasts. After happening upon and falling hopelessly in love with the emperor's daughter, Princess Mei Ling, Aladdin is determined to become the richest man in China and marry her, but fate is a fickle mistress and Aladdin's is about to take a few treacherous and hilarious turns before he can have his Happily Ever After.
Aladdin is as delightful as it is unique. So original in its concept, it presents a hugely influential style of theatre that will enthrall and entrance audiences of the young and young at heart. The materials include spectacularly detailed descriptions, diagrams, and stage notes should they be needed by the creative team.
