Ainsley Melham as Aladdin

Disney's cartoon-to-stage Broadway hit about a boy, an uncorked spirit and an aerodynamic rug comes to Melbourne

Following in the footsteps of Disney's lavish stage adaptation of Beauty and the BeastAladdin brings the 1992 animation to stage as a Orientalist spectacular with razzle dazzle to spare. There are a few new tunes courtesy of the film's original composer, Alan Menken (Litte Shop of Horrors), plus some in-genie-ous flying-carpet special effects.

The principal cast will remain the same as the Sydney season. Taking genie duties is Broadway's standby, Michael James Scott. For the titular role, local Ainsley Melham (Xanadu The Musical) is making his mainstage debut; the role of Jasmine will be played by Londoner Hiba Elchikhe.

The principal cast also features locals Adam Murphy as Jafar and Aljin Abella as Iago.
