VIDEO: Watch Cast of Broadway's ALADDIN on Last Night's 'Bachelorete'!

Broadway's Aladdin stars Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed were featured on last night's episode of ABC's "The Bachelorette."

In the episode, bachelorette Kaitlyn and her dates were off to the New Amsterdam Theatre, where Kaitlyn revealed that they would be auditioning for a walk-on role in Disney's "Aladdin," the Tony-winning hit Broadway musical.

The men were put through what would be a typically grueling audition process, trying to impress "Aladdin's" associate director and stars Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed to land the role. Later that night, Kaitlyn and the winner of the role made their Broadway debut. Check it out below!

Disney's Aladdin, the Tony Award-winning new musical comedy based on the Academy Award®-winning animated film, is now in its second smash year on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre (214 West 42nd Street).

Since beginning performances on Broadway, Aladdin has been seen by over three quarters of a million people and broken six New Amsterdam Theatre house records. Despite beginning performances eight weeks into 2014, Aladdin was the third highest-attended Broadway show of last year - only the juggernauts Wicked and The Lion King entertained more people - and finished 2014 as the fifth highest-grossing show of the year, the only show of last season to make the top five.

Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the show features music by Tony Award and eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Sister Act), lyrics by two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), three-time Tony Award and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (Evita, Aida) and four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Beguelin, and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).

Aladdin stars Adam Jacobs (Les Miserables, The Lion King) in the title role, Courtney Reed (In the Heights, Mamma Mia) as Jasmine, James Monroe Iglehart (Memphis, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) in his Tony Award-winning role of Genie, and, as Jafar, Tony Award nominee Jonathan Freeman (Mary Poppins, The Producers, She Loves Me) brings to the stage the role he indelibly created in the animated film. The show also stars Steel Burkhardt, Brian Gonzales and Jonathan Schwartz as Aladdin's sidekicks Babkak, Kassim and Omar, Clifton Davisas Sultan and Don Darryl Rivera as Iago. Merwin Foard and Trevor Dion Nicholas stand by for several principals.

In a cast of 34, Aladdin also features Kathryn Allison, Tia Altinay, Mike Cannon, Andrew Cao, Lauryn Ciardullo, Joshua Dela Cruz, YurelEchezarreta, Daisy Hobbs, Rodney Ingram, Donald Jones, Jr., Adam Kaokept, Nikki Long, Stanley Martin, Brandt Martinez, Michael Mindlin, Amber Owens, Bobby Pestka, Khori Michelle Petinaud, Ariel Reid, Jennifer Rias, Trent Saunders, Jaz Sealey and Dennis Stowe.
