Disney’s Aladdin: Dual Language Edition

In 1992, the Disney version of Aladdin charmed young fans into dreaming of magic carpets and genies (oh, and it sold millions in ticket sales and related products). Today kids can see a whole new theatrical version from Theater Under the Stars. TUTS is calling the newly minted musical Disney’s Aladdin: Dual Language Edition. In it, Aladdin speaks only English and Jasmine only Spanish. Meanwhile, the power-hungry and very evil Jafar handles both languages. Happily Rajar the tiger and Abu, Aladdin’s funny monkey, can translate for the young lovers. 11 a.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Through June 11. Miller Outdoor Theatre, 100 Concert Drive. For information, call 713-558-2600 or visit www.tuts.com. Free.
