Berkshire County Students Take the Stage in Disney's ALADDIN JR

Berkshire Theatre Group (BTG) will present Disney's Aladdin JR., April 26-28 at The Colonial Theatre, featuring Berkshire elementary and middle school students. This production is directed by Travis Daly, with music direction by Erin M. White and choreography by Kathy Jo Grover.

Disney's Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy-Award-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show, Aladdin. This production is sponsored by Lyon Aviation, MountainOne, Massachusetts Cultural Council and The Shubert Foundation.

As part of ArtWeek, BTG is hosting a meet and greet with the full cast after the April 26th, 7pm performance. After all performances, audiences will have the chance to meet Aladdin, Jasmine and other cast members in The Garage.

Director Travis Daly says, "The talent, creativity and commitment by our cast and crew of over 100 Berkshire County students is truly inspiring to see at every rehearsal. I can't wait for them to present this magical tale as an ensemble at the end of April."

Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and a wisecracking Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Aladdin embarks on a magic carpet ride adventure where he faces the evil sorcerer, Jafar and ultimately, himself. With favorite songs such as "Friend Like Me," "One Jump Ahead" and "Prince Ali," along with original songs and thrills, this new adaptation of the beloved story will open up "A Whole New World" for the entire family!
