Miller Outdoor Theatre, el Teatro Miller and Theatre Under the Stars, Teatro Bajo las Estrellas, announce a FREE Spanish and English production of
Disney's Aladdin: Dual Language Edition
Presented by Theatre Under the Stars’ Humphreys School of Music Theatre
HOUSTON―This summer, dual-language entertainment hits the stage when The Academy at Theatre Under the Stars presents Disney’s Aladdin: Dual Language Edition June 9-11, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Miller Outdoor Theatre.
The classic enchantment of Aladdin is made fresh in this innovative dual-language production. Aladdin speaks only English, Jasmine speaks only Spanish and Jafar speaks both languages, bringing new life to familiar songs. Raja the tiger and Abu the monkey act as translators for the young couple. Genie, the Sultan, Lago and all of your favorite characters come to life on the stage.
“Houston is such a perfect city for a musical like this,” said Bob Lawson, director of education and outreach at TUTS. “Many families really value the benefits of a bilingual education, and we’re very proud to produce a show that so many people can enjoy. Community outreach is a hugely important part of our mission at TUTS and Disney's Aladdin: Dual Language Edition is a perfect vehicle for TUTS to reach the Hispanic community. ”
The cast is composed of 43 students from Humphreys School of Musical Theatre Academy. The role of Aladdin is played by HSMT student Christian Warner, who played Young Simba on Broadway in The Lion King as well as on national tour. Jasmine is played by HSMT student Sandy Valles, who was recently seen in Geppetto and Son and last summer’s Disney’s When You Wish.
Every summer since 1968, Miller Outdoor Theatre has served as a venue for Theatre Under the Stars to provide free musical theater to Houston families. Theatre Under the Stars’ production of Disney's Aladdin: Dual Language Edition is made possible by the Miller Theatre Advisory Board, Inc.
Miller Outdoor Theatre, where performances are always free, has entertained and delighted several generations of Houstonians. Pack a picnic basket, a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the performance from the hill, or sit in the brand new seats under the canopy.
Approximately 1,700 new seats have just been installed under the canopy.
