CASA 0101 To Remount Aladdin, Dual Language Edition at LATC

L-R: Daniel Sugimoto (Aladdin), Sarah Kennedy (Princess Jazmín) and Lewis Powell III (Genie)

CASA 0101’s production, Disney’s Aladdin, Dual Language Edition/Edición De Lenguaje Dual, was so popular during its initial run earlier this year that the company is bringing it back for another two weeks at Los Angeles Theatre Center, September 8 – 15. This is a newly expanded version of the family friendly musical based on Disney’s 1992 Academy Award-winning film, Aladdin. Set in the fictional Middle Eastern city of Agrabah, beloved princess Jazmín finds true love with a commoner named Aladdin with the help a bigger than life Genie and his Magic Carpet. 2017 marks the historic 25th Anniversary of the Disney film.

Rigo Tejeda returns to direct and says, “We are very excited about the remount of our production of Disney’s Aladdin, Dual Language Edition/Edición De Lenguaje Dual. We will have a much larger stage at the Los Angeles Theatre Center with a cast of 25 led by Daniel Sugimoto, our newly cast Aladdin, and a new set designed by Marco De Leon. Audiences will be blown away by our new special effects, including The Magic Carpet and other special surprises.”

Ken Cerniglia, dramaturg and lterary manager for Disney Theatrical Productions adds, “Our dramaturgical mission…was to weave two languages into the plot while making sure that both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking audiences could follow the story. We hewed closely to the text and structure of Disney’s Aladdin JR., adapted for the stage by Bryan Louiselle and Jim Luigs, but amplified the show with a new back-story.”

Featured in the cast are Daniel Sugimoto as Aladdin, Valeria Maldonado and Sarah Kennedy alternating as Princess Jazmín, Finley Polynice and Lewis Powell III (Genie), Omar Mata and Luis Marquez (Jafar), Andrew Cano and Luis Fernandez-Gil (Iago), Evan Garcia (Razú), Henry Madrid (Sultán), Sebastian Gonzalez (Abu), Rosa Navarrete (Rajah), Danielle Espinoza (Magic Carpet). The three Royal Translators are Blanca Espinoza, Shanara Sanders, and Beatriz Tash, and the ensemble includes Jocelyn Sanchez, Andrew Cano, Abigail “Abey” Somera, Andrea Somera, Jesse Maldonado, Alejandro Lechuga, Bryant Melton, Monica Beld, and Andrew Allen.
