Aladdin: Shining, Shimmering, Splendid

See what our Nicola thought of Aladdin!
I coined a new phrase in the middle of this show, a light bulb moment if you will, as I witnessed a plethora of lavish costumes and impressive sets brought to life by a giant cast of 39. This is the Disney Dollar! I wondered how other shows could ever compete with this spectacle? Disney is a big part of our lives and we reminisce over the fairytales that raised us and tucked us into bed at night, planting little seeds of hopes and dreams that someday we too would be swept away, that the bad guy would get caught, and that we would ultimately live happily ever after. We know the music, love the characters, and when the opportunity presents itself to see them live in action, we go! These magical stories have travelled the globe shedding light through books, merchandise, movies and more recently, the stage. Disney has truly shown us a whole new world - shining, shimmering, splendid!

What is Aladdin about?
Plucky street urchin Aladdin's life is transformed forever when he ventures into the cave of Wonders and discovers a magic lamp. Out pops a manic Genie, who has the power to grant Aladdin three wishes. Aladdin's first wish is to be made into a prince, mainly so he can impress the city's beautiful Princess Jasmine, who he's sure could never love a pauper. But as love begins to blossom between Aladdin and Jasmine, there's trouble on the horizon. The nefarious statesman Jafar knows all about Aladdin's real identity and the power of the lamp, and is determined to secure the Genie's magic for himself!
