To kick off the new year a family friendly musical fantasy set in the fictional Middle Eastern city of Agrabah will come to life on the Main Stage of CASA 0101 Theater in Boyle Heights, CA as a beloved Disney princess finds true love with a commoner boy with a magic carpet in a land inhabited with a bigger than life Genie, royal translators and trouble makers, and fast-talking comedic bilingual animal sidekicks!
CASA 0101 Theater, Josefina López, Artistic Director and Emmanuel Deleage, Producer, Edward Padilla, Producer, and TNH Productions, Rigo Tejeda, Artistic Director, Abel Alvarado, Associate Artistic Director, Felipe Agredano, Producer and Conrado Terrazas, Producer, in association with Councilmember Gilbert A. Cedillo, City of Los Angeles, 1st District, present the musical, Disney’s Aladdin, Dual Language Edition/Edición De Lenguaje Dual with Book by Jim Luigs and José Cruz González, Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, Music Adapted, Arranged and Orchestrated by Bryan Louiselle, directed by Rigo Tejeda, based on the 1992 Disney Academy Awardâ-winning film Aladdin and Lyric Translations by Walterio Pezqueira, musically directed by Caroline Benzon and choreographed by Tania Possick. 2017 marks the historic 25th Anniversary of Disney’s film, Aladdin.
Ken Cerniglia, Dramaturg and Literary Manager for Disney Theatrical Productions said, “Our dramaturgical mission for Aladdin Dual Language Edition/Edición De Lenguaje Dual was to weave two languages into the plot while making sure that both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking audiences could follow the story. We hewed closely to the text and structure of Disney’s Aladdin JR., adapted for the stage by Bryan Louiselle and Jim Luigs, but amplified the show with a new back-story.” Disney’s Aladdin Jr. recently closed its successful run at Disney’s California Adventure.
The production will be presented on CASA 0101 Theater’s Main Stage, 2102 East First Street, Boyle Heights, CA 90033.
A Pay-What-You-Can Preview performance will be presented on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 8:00 p.m.
The musical will be presented for a Six-Week Run from January 13 (Press Opening Night) – February 19, 2017
