Back in the 1990s we all flocked to cinemas to discover the magic of Aladdin, a Disney film based on a story from One Thousand And One Nights, and since then scenes and songs from the film have become a part of popular culture.

So it is no wonder that audiences still respond to the material and with that in mind the story is the perfect choice for a stage musical. Following in the footsteps of other Disney films-turned-musicals like Beauty And The Beast and The Lion King, Aladdin now heads to the West End and it is likely to be one of the most popular shows in town.

The story focuses on the title character, a ‘street urchin’ in Agrabah, who must steal to survive in a cruel world. When he discovers a magic lamp, however, all of this changes and suddenly he has a chance at the life of which he has only dreamed. Inside the lamp is Genie and he grants his three wishes, setting the plot in motion. But whilst he tries to win the affections of Princess Jasmine, the daughter of the Sultan, he must also face the evil sorcerer Jafar.

The original film was released in 1992 and introduced audiences to well known musical numbers like Arabian Nights, A Whole New World and Prince Ali, amongst others, and these songs and more make it to the stage in this production.

It has also cast some talented performers in the lead role. Genie will be played by Trevor Dion Nicholas in the West End version. He is an actor who has worked in various shows in the United States. He was a standby Genie in the New York version of Aladdin and has appeared in other Disney productions like Festival Of The Lion King and Finding Nemo, both at Walt Disney World, in addition to well known shows like Into The Woods and The Wizard Of Oz. So he is an experienced performer who will bring new life to an iconic and beloved character.

Aladdin heads to the West End’s Prince Edward Theatre in 2016 and in the process replaces another beloved musical in Miss Saigon. The adaptation of the classic Disney hit runs at the venue from Thursday 9th June 2016 (with previews beginning on Friday 27th May 2016).
