Aladdin the Broadway Musical shows have been canceled due to COVID-19, but we now have a way to bring home a bit of the fun and magic of Aladdin to our homes. Read about how you can bring home great activities, view never-before-seen videos of the show, and even sing-along with the cast.
One of my all-time favorite Disney songs is from Aladdin. I absolutely love the song “Prince Ali.” This song will have you tapping your feet, dancing throughout your home, and you will be singing of the greatness of Prince Ali.
This sing-along edition will have you singing that Prince Ali is “stronger than 10 regular men definitely.”
The best part is that you can sing as loud as you like and nobody will be there to judge you. You have our permission to belt it out as if you were on the Broadway stage.
There is an activity pack that has so many great activities for you and your family to have an Aladdin Party Night at home.
In the activity pack, you will find a synopsis for the play which is very similar to that of the live-action movie Aladdin that was released in 2019. It is interesting that the moment is mentioned in the first synopsis that Aladdin’s mother is the driving force for Aladdin to turn away from a life of theft.
This would be a lot of fun for different members of your family to act out as you read along.
Cast of Characters
Aladdin, of course, has his favorite sidekick, Abu, but the Broadway musical also introduces to a few new friends such as Babkak, who thinks only of food. Omar is a fellow thief who is a bit more shy than the others. Kassim is “tough as nails” and is also a thief. It is interesting to see how these additional characters add to this beloved story.
