Aladdin, the sensational musical based on Disney’s hit animated film is coming to the Benedum Center!
The musical is based on the eponymous 1992 Disney film and features an impressive ensemble of artists who bring to life the story of a poor young man who discovers a genie in a lamp and uses his wishes to marry the princess he loves and to thwart the Sultan's evil Grand Vizier. The musical’s book was written by playwright and four time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin, with music by Academy Award winning composer Alan Menken. Its lyrics were penned by Academy and Tony Award winning lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.
