The Un-Common Theatre Company is set to present the Young Performers' production of "Disney's Aladdin Jr.", on Friday, March 16th through Sunday, March 18th at the Qualters Middle School in Mansfield, MA.

Welcome to Agrabah, City of Enchantment, where every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail! All of the favorite characters are here in "Disney's Aladdin Jr.", a stage adaptation of the Disney hit film. Filled with magic, mayhem, and flying carpet rides, audiences' spirits will soar with excitement. Most of all, the tuneful, Academy award-winning score with songs including "A Whole New World" and "Friend Like Me" will certainly make this musical a favorite for theatre-goers of all ages!

Director Ashley Goverman, a Mansfield High School senior, helps the cast transport the audience to Agrabah in this beloved Disney classic. "It is so fulfilling to see the kids creating original relationships out of timeless characters, and to see them diving in headfirst to learn challenging music and choreography!" says Goverman.

Under the guidance of choreographer Emily Levine, a Mansfield High School junior, the musical numbers bring the city of Agrabah to life showcasing the young cast's dance talents. Linda Barbieri of Attleboro, MA lends her considerable experience to hone the voices of these youngsters and bring out the best in the entire cast.
