(The Philippine Star) - October 8, 2012 - 12:00am

 MANILA, Philippines - After the success of it’s productions of Disney’s Beauty & The Beast in 2005 and Disney’s The Little Mermaid last year, Atlantis Productions proudly announces that it has been handpicked by Disney Theatricals to stage the Asian premiere of it’s newest full-length stage musical Disney’s Aladdin.

Based on the much-loved animated film, Aladdin tells the story of a street-smart commoner whose whole life changes with one rub of a magic lamp. The brand new romantic musical adventure incorporates all the beloved songs from the film’s Oscar-winning score and brings some of the movie’s most memorable characters to life. Jafar, Iago, the Sultan, the Genie and of course Aladdin and Jasmine come together to create a whole new world of magical musical theater for the whole family. Aladdin features music by eight-time Oscar Award winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Oscar Award-winner Howard Ashman, Oscar-award winner Tim Rice, and Tony Award nominated lyricist Chad Beguelin (who also wrote the brand new book of the musical).

Atlantis Productions’ head, Bobby Garcia, says, “We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Disney Theatricals with their brand new stage musical Aladdin, which only recently premiered in the United States. We are honored that Disney has handpicked us to premiere the musical in Asia. We look forward to creating the enchanting world of Agrabah and the romantic Arabian nights where Aladdin and Princess Jasmine take flight on their magic carpet ride. It will definitely be the musical event for families in 2012. We can’t wait to begin.”

Award-winning recording artist, film and television star, and musical theater performer Aiza Seguerra and veteran stage actor Calvin Millado will alternate in the role of the Genie, which Robin Williams voiced in the animated classic.

Aiza Seguerra has appeared in musicals such as The Rocky Horror Show, Avenue Q (both in Manila and Singapore), and, most recently, in Rock of Ages. Calvin has been seen in musicals such as Rent, Legally Blonde, The Rocky Horror Show, In The Heights, Avenue Q, and Rock of Ages. They join the previously announced Tom Rodriguez as Aladdin and K-La Rivera as Princess Jasmine.

Atlantis Productions’ staging of Disney’s Aladdin will open in November at the Meralco Theatre and is made possible through a special licensing arrangement with Music Theatre International.  Shows are now available for show-buying and fundraising opportunities.
