Thirty students from 4th to 8th grade at Newport Intermediate and Isaac Newton Magnet Schools are putting on one of Walt Disney’s best loved musical stories: Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, next Monday and Tuesday nights at the Performing Arts Center in Newport.
The students sing and dance their way through the story of a poor street kid, Aladdin, who is lucky to meet a rather bored Princess Jasmine in the market in a large Arabian town. They learn that an evil man named Jafar knows of a magic lamp hidden in a faraway cave and that Jafar intends to get one of its three wishes granted, so he can take over the kingdom. Aladdin outfoxes Jafar and retrieves the lamp and puts those three wishes to better ends.
To see how everything turns out, all you have to do is take your loved ones to see Aladdin and the Magic Lamp either Monday or Tuesday night, June 2 and 3, at the Performing Arts Center in Newport. Show starts at 7pm both nights. Tickets are $6.00 and all proceeds go to the school’s Art and Drama programs.
These kids have been rehearsing since late March and they’d sure like to see a couple of packed houses! June 2 and 3, 7pm, at the PAC.
