I have always been a big fan of musical theatre for some of you who might known me personally. I've been involved in a local musical production in Sabah and then I've been actively shooting for a few musical theatre performed by the students of La Salle School of Art in Singapore. The very last musical which I went to was the Magical Musicals. This time, they are back again with Aladdin The Musical! Are you ready to go on a magic carpet ride with Aladdin this coming November? Sunway Lagoon brings a whole new world to the Amphitheatre with Aladdin The Musical!
This post serves as a pre-event writeup to give a heads up for this upcoming Aladdin The Musical. The opening night for this West End Production is set for November 25th in a Gala Premiere, which will
include special stage effects, over at the Amphitheatre @ Sunway Lagoon.
“Following the immense success of our earlier productions, Peter Pan The Musical and Magical Musicals, we have decided take our stage production expertise to the next level with Aladdin The Musical. We are very excited for this upcoming production because of the ‘magical’ quality to this age-old tale. From flying carpets, pyrotechnics, snow to other aerial performances, our production team will be bringing the magic of Aladdin to life”

So there you have it, Aladdin The Musical will be telling the tale of a boy's magical adventure from street rat to prince, when he is discovered to be ‘a diamond in the rough’ by Jafar, the evil aide to the bubbly and lovable Sultan. With the help of a magic lamp and a jovial ‘rapping’ Genie, Aladdin wrestles against the odds to win the heart of Princess Jasmine while he ingeniously uses good to triumph over evil.
Audiences can expect to see familiar characters such as Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, The Sultan, Jafar, Slave of the Ring and of course The Genie of the Lamp himself. The six principal characters will be played by talents who hail from London’s famous West End. They will be joined by an international ensemble cast of dancers, fire eaters and stilt-walkers.

The musical will show once a day, from Sunday to Friday at 8:00pm (no show on Tuesdays), and twice on Saturdays at 7:15pm and 9:15pm with extra shows on 25th December 2011 (Sunday) and 1st January 2012 (Sunday) at 7:15pm and 9:15pm.
