Milam Community Theater will present Aladdin Jr. in two performances


The Milam Community Theater is training for its April production of the musical Aladdin Jr.

Since there were over 80 kids who auditioned for the production, there will be two separate casts, the Iago and Jafar casts.

The cast of Iago will perform Friday and Saturday April 9 and 10 at 6 p.m. and Sunday April 11 at 3 p.m.

The cast of Jafar will perform on Friday and Saturday April 16 and 17 at 6 p.m. and Sunday April 18 at 3 p.m.

Tickets are now available online. You can wait and pay at the door, but they are limited to 110 tickets per show, and usually in the past all children’s shows were sold out. It is recommended to purchase tickets in advance just to ensure you have tickets. Children three and under are free. You can also purchase tickets at the box office on

The show takes place in the city of Agrabah as Aladdin, a poor street urchin, spends his time stealing food from the market with his friends Babkak, Omar and Kassim. His adventures begin when he meets a young girl, Jasmine, who happens to be a princess. Jasmine is forced to be married off to another prince by her father, the Sultan, who is clearly agitated by Jasmine’s refusal to toe the line.

Aladdin’s luck suddenly turns when he retrieves a magic lamp from a place called the Cave of Wonders. What he accidentally gets is a fun, wacky genius who only wants his freedom. Little do they know that the Sultan’s sinister adviser, Jafar, and his bird, Iago, have their own plans for Jasmine, Aladdin, and the Lamp.

Concessions will be sold before the show and during intermission. Proceeds will go to scholarships for senior graduates. There are four seniors this year and many next year. Candygrams will also be sold before the show and during intermission.

There will also be a character breakfast/brunch on April 3 at the Williams Event Center. The cost is $10 per participant. Reserve your spot today at Iago Cast Breakfast is from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and Jafar Cast Brunch is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
