Full Synopsis

Vendors welcome us to the marketplace of Agrabah and transform into the characters of our story ("Arabian Nights"). Princess Jasmine must choose a husband by tomorrow night or be forced to marry the Royal Vizier, Jafar. Jafar hatches a plan with his parrot, Iago, to use the lamp from the Cave of Wonders to steal the throne from the Sultan. As the Tiger God pronounces that only the "diamond in the rough" can take the lamp, Jafar sees a vision of Aladdin stealing a load of bread. While escaping from the angry mob of Vendors, Aladdin runs into Princess Jasmine in disguise ("One Jump Ahead"). Finally caught by the Palace Guards, Jasmine reveals her identity, trying in vain to save her new friend, Aladdin ("One Jump Ahead – Reprise"). Jafar releases Aladdin from jail on the condition that he retrieve the lamp. In the Cave of Wonders, the very hungry Aladdin takes a banana, which causes the cave to trap him inside. Aladdin rubs the lamp for some light, which releases the Genie, who offers him three wishes ("Friend Like Me"). Aladdin first wishes to escape and, second, to become a prince. The flying carpet, Avis, arrives and takes Aladdin and Genie back to Agrabah.

Jasmine argues with Jafar and the Sultan about Aladdin when a new suitor arrives ("Prince Ali"). Although she is initially put-off by Prince Ali, Jasmine soon warms to him, and he takes her on a magical carpet ride ("A Whole New World"). Back at the palace, Jafar has taken the lamp and become the Genie's new master. Prince Ali challenges Jafar, who has used one of his wishes to turn himself into a powerful sorcerer. Jafar accepts Prince Ali's challenge, but reveals that he is really Aladdin ("Prince Ali – Reprise"). Aladdin tricks Jafar into using his final wish to turn himself into a powerful genie. Bound by the laws of the lamp, Jafar is imprisoned. Aladdin then uses his final wish to set the Genie free. Inspired by Aladdin's selflessness, the Sultan changes the law, allowing the princess to marry whomever she would like. Jasmine chooses... Aladdin ("Finale").

Character Breakdown

Aladdin

Aladdin, a poor street urchin, longs to do the right thing, but sometimes loses his way. He's the thief with a heart of gold, so cast your most charismatic actor with the versatility to play both the playful prankster and caring lead. Make sure he has the vocal chops to carry this heavy- singing role.

Gender: male
Vocal range top: Eb5
Vocal range bottom: A3
Genie

Genie is the fun-loving, scene-stealing wisecracker who lives in the lamp and yearns to be free. Genie doesn’t need to be your strongest singer or dancer – look for an actor with great comic timing and a flashy and fun sense of showmanship.

Gender: any
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: B3
Iago

Iago is the fawning and funny parrot and sidekick to Jafar. With only a few lyrics to sing, focus on finding an actor who can execute this lackey's many sarcastic asides with comedic flair.

Gender: any
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: Ab3
Jafar

Jafar is the power-hungry and crooked Royal Vizier. Cast a strong actor who can sing (or speak in rhythm) and portray both sides of Jafar's two- faced personality - loyal advisor to the Sultan and scheming villain - as well as pull off delicious comedic moments with his lackey Iago.

Gender: male
Vocal range top: F4
Vocal range bottom: Ab3
Jasmine

Jasmine, the Princess of Agrabah, longs to experience the world outside the palace walls. Curious and assertive, she knows what she wants and craves the freedom to create change and help the people of her kingdom. Cast a strong actor and singer who can portray both the caring lead and a young woman caught between her responsibilities to her people and to herself.

Gender: female
Vocal range top: Eb5
Vocal range bottom: B3
Lamp Vendor

The Lamp Salesman is a likeable fast-talking vendor who serves as the principal storyteller in our show. The student playing this role should be comfortable onstage and have a clear speaking voice. Since this is not a major singing role, it is ideal for a strong actor still developing his or her singing skills.

Gender: any
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: D4
Sultan

Sultan, the warm-hearted ruler who dotes on his daughter, is committed to upholding the ancient laws of Agrabah. Focus on finding an actor who can play this father figure convincingly.

Gender: male
Ensemble

The Ensemble includes Djinn, magical theatrical spirits of the lamp; Agrabahns, citizens of Agrabah; palace Guards; hungry Beggars in the marketplace; Skeletons of past prisoner of the royal dungeon; and Prince Ali's Entourage.

Djinn are the spirits of the lamp who help execute the magic of the story and sing with Genie in "Friend Like Me." Look for performers with a sense of theatricality and movement - you may choose to use them as featured dancers in "Friend Like Me."

Agrabahns, the citizens of Agrabah who help to create the bustling marketplace, can include street performers, snake charmers, shoppers, fortune tellers, and families.

Guards follow Jafar's orders. While there are only four solo singing roles, feel free to include as many additional guards as you like in your production.

Beggars are a small group with whom Aladdin briefly interacts and who sing one lyric as a group; feel free to cast as many or as few as best suits your production.

The Skeletons of past prisoners come to life in the palace's dungeon to sing the "Dungeon Ditty." For this group, look for performers who can both move and sing well. 

The Entourage helps to create the spectacular parade of "Prince Ali" through the royal palace.

Gender: any
Bread Vendor

Bread Vendor is an aggravated seller in the marketplace from whom Aladdin steals.

Gender: any
Fruit Vendor

Fruit Vendor is a friendly merchant in the marketplace.

Gender: any
Prince Abdullah

Prince Abdullah, Prince Hassim, and Prince Malik are the royal suitors who aspire to marry Jasmine. These pompous princes are more interested in becoming Sultan than getting to know the Princess, so cast three actors who can humorously convey different levels of clichéd coolness.

Prince Hassim

Gender: male
Prince Malik

Prince Abdullah, Prince Hassim, and Prince Malik are the royal suitors who aspire to marry Jasmine. These pompous princes are more interested in becoming Sultan than getting to know the Princess, so cast three actors who can humorously convey different levels of clichéd coolness.

Gender: male
Cave Guardian

The Cave Guardian is the ominous guard who instructs Aladdin to touch only the lamp. You may choose to cast this role as an onstage character or as an offstage voice.

Gender: any
Avis

Avis, a magical flying carpet, can be approached in a number of ways (see Director's Guide for costuming ideas) - either presented more literally as a carpet or, more expressionistically as a dancer who works with a stretch of fabric or dons a creative costume. Regardless of your vision for this character, Avis doesn't speak, so look for a performer who can articulate storytelling through both facial expressions and movement.
