The Roslyn Middle School Spotlight Drama Club hosted four performances of Disney’s Aladdin Jr. for the Roslyn Community from March 2-5, 2023. They also performed select scenes for students at Harbor Hill and East Hills elementary schools on February 15, 2023.
Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show. It’s the story of Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, (played by Dylan Sakaria, Gefen Portnoy, Madeline Klein, and Lilly Bakhchi) who are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie (played by Nevada Yip) who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, (played by Ava Klein) Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character.
“We are so incredibly proud of the students for all their hard work,” said music teacher Dorothy Burns. “Congratulations to everyone involved in the production!”
