An adaption of the hit 1992 animated movie, the Disney stage musical closed in London in 2019 having opened at the Prince Edward Theatre in London in June 2016.

Telling the story of a poor boy who chances upon a wish-granting genie, the show features both the songs from the original film plus new music written for the stage.

The UK tour will begin in in Edinburgh in October ahead of playing Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre over Christmas. The show then tours to Plymouth, Sunderland and Milton Keynes. Further dates will be announced.

Across the pond in New York, Aladdin continues to play on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

Thomas Schumacher, President and Producer of Disney Theatrical Productions said: “As Aladdin approaches its second decade onstage, we are thrilled that the 11th production of the glorious Broadway show will soon be seen by audiences throughout the UK and Ireland.

“Thanks to Casey Nicholaw’s direction, Alan Menken’s music and the peerless design team of Bob Crowley, Natasha Katz and Gregg Barnes this show is a powerful tonic, an irresistible lift for every audience who sees it”.
