"Aladdin" Cast Interview #1
The musical Disney's Aladdin, Jr. takes the stage this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Huntington's Renaissance Theatre, so let's hear from the young and talented cast!
All this week we'll be running interviews with the cast, starting the Holly Price, who plays the part of one of the Narrators, guiding the audience through the story of the "street rat" who finds a magic lamp, a powerful genie and tries to win the love of a beautiful princess!
Q: Tell us about the story of "Aladdin."
Holly: Disney's Aladdin Jr, is about a common thief named Aladdin who only cares for himself. But when he encounters Jasmine, Princess of Agrobah, his world turns upside down. After being arrested and put in a cave he stumbles upon a lamp. With one rub we meet the crazy outgoing Genie who grants him three wishes. As he uses those wishes he learns new and amazing things about honesty, love and friendship. In the end he proves that being a prince on the inside is most important.
Q: What's you favorite song in the show?
Holly: My favorite song in this musical is "A Whole New World" because of the connection that Jasmine and Alladin make.

Holly: I would most definitely recommend this show because it is so much fun for everyone. It's a family friendly show that every will learn from and enjoy.
