The Marriott Theatre for Young Audiences introduces yearlings of all ages to the joy of live theater, enchanting audiences with lavish musical productions of popular works. This season, The Marriot rolls out the flying carpet for a winning rendition of Disney’s Aladdin, the mirthful classic that inspires kids to habitually polish lamps and avoid Gilbert Gottfried. Beloved characters—including the romantic rapscallion Aladdin, the dreamy Princess Jasmine, and the hilariously agoraphobic Genie—sweep across the stage on levitating rugs, granting wishes and crooning tunes such as “A Whole New World” and “Friend Like Me” from the Academy-Award-winning score. Filled with romance, thrills, music, and guffaws, Aladdin gives children the chance to watch their hero as he foils the nefarious Jafar’s attempts to steal Aladdin’s girl, genie, and Aspen timeshare cottage.
