To kick off the year, Disney’s Aladdin Jr. will make a magical debut in March / April. The live musical will feature Alan Menkin’s Academy award winning score and a host of popular Aladdin songs including the romantic hit A whole new world. Audiences young and old will experience a whole new magic carpet ride starring all of Aladdin’s favourite characters in this popular tale about bravery, selflessness and courage.
“We are excited to be presenting such a variety to our audiences in 2016. We love that we get the opportunity to do the ‘Disney’ junior versions of Aladdin and Peter Pan, for the very first time, one a great adventure and love story and the other, a musical based on one the most beloved children’s stories,” say Peoples Theatre directors Jill Girard and Keith Smith. “But we must admit that we can’t wait to introduce our version of Seussical to young audiences. What a treat they are in for!”
For the very first time Peoples Theatre will bring the enchanting story of a girl, a pixie, mermaids, some lost boys, a band of pirates and a boy who refuses to grow up. Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. is a modernised version inspired by the Disney film and JM Barrie’s magical story. The show will feature new and exciting arrangements of the classic Disney songs like Following the leader, You can fly and Yo, Ho, a pirates life for me, to name some. Children will be enthralled when they meet Peter Pan, Wendy Darling, Tinkerbell, the lost boys and of course the infamous pirate Captain Hook and his silly sidekick Mr. Smee. Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. will hit the stage in June / July.
Inspired by the fabulous Broadway show, Seussical scheduled for November / December promises to delight adults and children alike. Based on the much adored books of Dr. Seuss, this fantastical musical will bring to life the Cat in the Hat and Horton the Elephant with a whole host of other wonderful, whacky characters from the stories of Seuss. There isn’t a more perfect way to end the year than with the stunning costumes, stylised set, laugh-out-loud humour and eccentric charm that is Seussical the Musical.
