For Aladdin it’s not easy to find a magic lamp but it’s even harder to get a date! It’s a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade, and even Sinbad the Sailor, as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a Cave of (not-so-great) Wonders. Along his way Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise Genies, a powerful Sultan, and his own Mother to find a way to meet the Princess. However, even with the lamp in hand, Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more than a wish to make a good impression. Full of memorable characters, from lost Penguins to talking Palm Trees, this is an adventure worthy of 1001 laughs.
Auditions will be held for ALADDIN on Mon, Nov 9, from 12:40-2:40pm, at the Methow Valley Elementary School commons. Some of the cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the audition. All students grades K-12 are encouraged to audition. Not all who audition will be cast in parts; MCT can only take about 50 kids. No advance preparation is necessary. Assistant Directors will also be cast to assist with the technical aspects of the production.
The Missoula Children’s Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals at MVE throughout the week from 12:40-5:10pm each day. Not all actors will need to rehearse every day; rehearsal schedule depends on roles.
