I think the children enjoyed the characters when they were in the aisles. It held their attention. The main characters - boy and girl_ were good.
However, the total performance did not seem to move along smoothly - not the quality of past...continued

Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp

By James Norris, based on the wondrous tales by Scheherazade.

A very spectacular dramatization of Scheherazade’s most wondrous tale by James Norris. Directed and designed by James P. Byrne. Costume Design by Melissa Miller. With Sebastian Kim as Aladdin and Samantha Boucher as Princess Adora.

The timeless trouble-maker Aladdin is up to his old tricks again this spring at Wheelock Family Theatre in James Norris’s adaption of the classic tale from The Book of One Thousand and One Nights, commonly known as The Arabian Nights.

Written long before Disney’s feature film saw its debut, Norris’s adaption is an opportunity for children to see their favorite hero Aladdin in a story honoring the original tale. It’s a chance for Aladdin-lovers to discover a new side to the lovable hooligan’s journey, and even inspire research into the original text of the mysterious, centuries-old Arabian Nights.

Of course, some things never change. Aladdin still pursues the beautiful princess (Princess Adora), and is overjoyed to find magical genies who will answer his wishes. Mischief ensues, however, when the Sultan—Adora’s overprotective father—hears of Aladdin’s intentions with his beloved daughter.


Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp_ lets children delight in the possibilities of a wish-granting genie, but—as “wonderful” as Aladdin’s lamp seems to be—Aladdin must always learn to be careful what he wishes for…because it might come true!  Great for grades K-8.
