A whole new is coming to the stage here in the Duke City with a twist. Disney’s Aladdin will run August 2 through August 4 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The animated classic is even better with lyrics in both Spanish and English and a revamped plot that creates the dramatic necessity for the bilingual script.
The story begins centuries ago, when the royalty of Agrabah spoke one language and the citizens another. Communication is impossible without translation—which is controlled by the evil vizier, Jafar. When the rebellious princess Jazmin and a delinquent street rat, Aladdin, meet in the marketplace, they find something special in one another. Together, they work to transcend the barriers between them, and, with a little magic, help create a better future for themselves and for Agrabah.
The Cardboard Theatre Company provides amazing opportunities and training for local children ages 8 to 18+ in performance and stage production. Over the years the troupe has performed dozens of successful shows including several Disney Classics such as Alice in Wonderland, High School Musical and The Lion King.
Tickets range from $10 to $15. Learn more about Disney’s Aladdin at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
