TAKE A MAGIC CARPET RIDE TO AGRABAH! DENMARK HIGH SCHOOL TO FLY HIGH WITH ALADDIN JR.! Denmark, WI, USA-October 1, 2014-Denmark High School Music Theatre will present its fall musical, Disney’s “Aladdin Junior.”, opening October 31st and running two weekends. Disney’s “Aladdin Junior” brings the famous movie to life again on stage. In Agrabah, City of Enchantment, every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail! Aladdin, a kind but wily street urchin, falls in love with beautiful Princess Jasmine. It just so happens that the Sultan has declared that Princess Jasmine must choose a husband within the next day. After she turns down the offers from various wealthy suitors, Aladdin and the evil Jafar duke it out for Jasmine’s love. With a little help from a wacky genie, Aladdin manages to win Jasmine’s hand in marriage. Based on the popular movie, an updated musical version is currently running on Broadway with the genie earning the Best Actor award at last year’s Tony Awards show. This show will have some of that new musical flavor while sticking close to the classic tale’s storyline. This won’t be your typical high school production, however, as characters will literally fly over the stage on the magic carpet, thanks to flying effects provided by Hall and Associates Flying Effects. The spectacle won’t stop there, as many special effects will be sure to delight and engage audiences. The students will also wow with their ensemble singing, interpretation of the characters, and Broadway-caliber choreography. The cast includes: Aaron Mleziva, whose characterization and vocal prowess is spot on in the lead role of Aladdin; Malia O’Keefe, as the lovely yet unfaltering Princess Jasmine; Sarah Duginske, Mackenzie Linzmeier, Emily Tomcek, Julia Van Netten, and Sam Valenta narrate the classic tale through song, setting the scene as each story element unfolds; Jacob Novak embodies the role of the evil villian, Jafar; Iago, his sidekick parrot, is brought to life through amazing puppetry, and annoying nonetheless astounding comedic timing by Alex W. Strouf; Jafar’s henchmen (Noah Brunner, Jon Deprey, and Devan Siebert) also provide comic relief; Magic Carpet (Elizabeth Goetsch) tumbles and flies her way into the hearts of onlookers; Bailee Harper as the genial genie will surely leave audiences smiling; and Tiffany Polzin’s performance as Abu the mischievous monkey is surely scene-stealing. An extremely talented group of middle and high school students round out the cast as townspeople, a harem, Princes and attendants, Raja the tiger (Lizzy Novak), and countless other colorful characters. The show is directed by David and Jennifer Harper, and Malia O’Keefe (student director). Performance dates are: October 31st, November 1st, 7th, and 8th with shows at 7:00 pm and matinees on November 2nd and 9th at 1:00pm. The Halloween performance will include a costume contest for children 10 and under who come dressed as their favorite Disney character, and the November 2nd matinee will include a free photo opportunity on stage at Agrabah Palace with the cast of characters. Tickets are available for purchase at Denmark High School, Denmark State Bank (Denmark), and BMO Harris Bank (Denmark) or online at http://aladdin-dhsmusictheatre.bpt.me/ .
