DeKALB – This weekend, the Huntley Middle School auditorium will be transformed into the faraway city of Agrabah, home of Princess Jasmine and a poor street urchin named Aladdin. “Aladdin Jr.” will come to the stage on Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20. Join Jasmine, Aladdin and the Genie on an adventure of dreams, deception, greed and wishes.
The cast includes Ian Panke as Aladdin, Grace Klonoski as Jasmine, Michael Williams as the Genie, Matt Angel as the Sultan, Jacob Ihm as the Sultan Jafar and Siobhan Gallagher as the parrot, Iago.
“I always feel it is important to keep raising the bar for students,” said Kim Moorman, HMS choral director and “Aladdin Jr.” director. “Students at the middle school level are capable of unbelievable things and this show is evidence. They are working very hard, and we have a fabulous cast and crew. The students can’t wait to try on their costumes, see the amazing drops and lights, fly on the ‘magic carpet’ and put on a great show for everyone.”
Performances will be at 7 p.m. April 19 and 20 and 2 p.m. April 20. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students and are available at the door.
