Set in the middle-eastern town of Agrabah, Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant him three wishes. At the royal palace, the princess, Jasmine, is feeling hemmed in by her father’s desire to find her a groom; while the Sultan’s right-hand man, Jafar, is plotting to take over the throne. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character.
Disney’s Aladdin, Jr. is based upon the 1992 animated film, and the 2014 hit Broadway production about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies within.
