Nothing like a good Disney musical to liven up the waning days of winter.
Christ the King school will present that magical tale of Aladdin on March 4-5 at the school, 1122 Long Ave., Richland.
"The story is a timeless classic about Aladdin, orphaned and living on the street, being arrested and thrown into a cave to await his execution for a crime he didn't commit," said director Janice McIntyre.
While stuck in the cave, however, Aladdin soon discovers a lamp that contains a powerful genie who grants him three wishes, one of which is to turn him into a prince.
Never miss a local story.
Aladdin becomes Prince Ali and falls head-over-heels in love with Princess Jasmine. But the evil Jafar discovers what's happened and exposes Aladdin for who he really is.
"Even though Jasmine finds out (Aladdin) is not a prince, they defeat the power-hungry Jafar," McIntyre said. "And with the sultan's blessing, (Aladdin and Jasmine) wed at the end."
Christ the King elementary students play all the roles, with Shane Douglas as Aladdin, Amy Aiello as Jasmine, Sam Lewis as the genie, Joseph Portch as Jafar, Addie David as Iago, Paul Noble as the sultan and Mitch Treadway as Razoul.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Curtain time is 6:30 p.m.
