Audiences across the UK can expect a thrilling production full of magic, comedy and spectacle as Aladdin tours for the first time.
Opening in Edinburgh on 24th October, the show will head to theatres in Cardiff, Plymouth, Sunderland and Milton Keynes, with more cities and dates to be announced in due course.
Group travel organisers can sign up for early access to tickets before the general sale at aladdinthemusical.co.uk.
The show continues its record-breaking run on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre, and since opening there in March 2014, nine subsequent productions have launched around the world, including its 2016 West End premiere at the Prince Edward Theatre, London where the show ran until August 2019.
It was adapted from Disney’s 1992 animated film and centuries-old folktales including One Thousand and One Nights.
Thomas Schumacher, president & producer at Disney Theatrical Productions, said: “As Aladdin approaches its second decade on-stage, we are thrilled that the 11th production of the glorious Broadway show will soon be seen by audiences throughout the UK and Ireland.
“Thanks to Casey Nicholaw’s direction, Alan Menken’s music and the peerless design team of Bob Crowley, Natasha Katz and Gregg Barnes this show is a powerful tonic, an irresistible lift for every audience who sees it.
“The musical theatre performers in the UK and Ireland rival any on the planet and we look forward to presenting the best of them in this joyous new production.”
Aladdin features the timeless songs from the animated film, as well as new music by Tony, Olivier, Grammy and eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies and Sister Act).
Further venues, tour dates and casting are still to be announced. All information can be found at aladdinthemusical.co.uk
