RACINE — Jerstad-Agerholm K8 Upper School students are scheduled to present “Aladdin Jr.” at 7 p.m. April 19-21 and 2 p.m. April 22, in the theater at Jerstad-Agerholm Elementary School, 3535 LaSalle St.
“Aladdin Jr.” is the story about the town of Agrabah and its colorful and conflicted characters. Princess Jasmine is feeling hemmed in by her father’s desire to find her a royal groom. Meanwhile, the Sultan’s right-hand man, Jafar, is plotting to take over the throne. When Jasmine sneaks out of the palace incognito, she forms an instant connection with Aladdin, a charming street urchin and reformed thief.
After being discovered together, Aladdin is sentenced to death. The Royal Guards wrongly put Aladdin in the Cave of Wonders where Jafar keeps all his stolen, priceless items in which resides in a magical lamp. Where there’s a lamp, there’s a Genie, and once Aladdin unwittingly lets this one out, anything can happen.
Will Aladdin’s new identity as “Prince Ali” help him win Jasmine’s heart and thwart Jafar’s evil plans? Will the Genie’s wish for freedom ever come true?
Tickets, available at the door, cost $8 for adults, and $5 for seniors and students. There is no charge for children ages 5 and younger.
