This classic tale is an exotic adventure based on "Tales From the Arabian Nights," where a poor young boy, Aladdin, must go out and earn money for his family’s survival. While traveling throughout the country selling his wares, he is fooled by evil magician Salabin, who convinces him to find an antique oil lamp. Aladdin rubs the old lamp and releases a Genie that can make all his wishes come true. Now Aladdin must outsmart the magician to save his family! Through this play, our wish is to encourage the students to rise above the odds and follow their dreams.
