Get ready to experience the theatrical version of an iconic film, as the New Tampa Players host the performance of “Aladdin Jr.”
In addition to being an adaptation of the motion picture “Aladdin,” the play also draws from the Broadway musical.
The performances are set for April 5 at 8 p.m.; April 6 at 7 p.m.; and April 7 at 3 p.m.
New Tampa Players has worked with the Penguin Project organization in casting youth with special needs for all the roles.
These stars will also be accompanied on stage with peer mentors for support.
Many of the actors, ranging from ages 7 to 24, will be representing the communities of Lutz, Land O’ Lakes and Wesley Chapel.
Some performers from these areas will also play principal characters, including Jaden Figueroa as Aladdin and Zoe DeJoseph as Jasmine.
The play will also be a musical, performing popular “Aladdin” songs, such as “Friend Like Me,” “Prince Ali” and “A Whole New World.”
Each ticket can be purchased at a $15 flat fee online or at the door on performance day.
Proceeds benefit the New Tampa Players to help support future productions.
The play will be held at the University Area Cultural Development Center on 14013 N. 22nd St., in Tampa.
