As part of the Borland Center’s kid-friendly family series, Disney’s Aladdin, Jr. sees its titular character leaping from the screen to the stage during a trio of energized musical performances. Based on Disney’s beloved 1992 film, the theatrical offshoot sends admiration buzzing through theater seats as Aladdin, Jasmine, and the Genie lead an action-packed adventure across Agrabah. Timeless sing-alongs from the story’s Academy Award–winning score, including “A Whole New World” and “Friend Like Me,” amplify the onstage mischief and drown out the appeals of pushy magic-carpet salesmen proffering their merchandise to the audience.
Named in honor of golf-course designer Bruce Borland, who died in a plane accident in 1999, the Borland Center for the Performing Arts swings open its doors to the community by focusing on family values. Concerts, plays, and recitals are just a few of the events that coax guests into the venue’s 10,000 square feet of space, which harbors a 500-seat theater and a multipurpose ballroom that doubles as an indoor practice field for local cribbage teams on rainy days.
