Aladdin Jr Niagara Falls

Silver Mist Productions is bringing a live performance of Disney’s “Aladdin Jr.” to Niagara Falls. The musical adaptation of the hit Disney film will be opening at the 700 seat Greg Frewin Theatre, May 16th, 2006.

Actors from across Canada auditioned for the 16 roles in the much anticipated performance. A theatrical version of the 1991 animated film Aladdin, the $1.6-million production of Disney’s “Aladdin Jr.” marks the first show by Silver Mist Productions, a new Niagara based company. Producer Linus Hand says about 500 actors requested auditions. Of that group, 150 were invited to Niagara Falls to compete for various roles. “We were overwhelmed by the number of requests we got from professional actors,” he said. Aladdin Jr. is directed by Raquel Duffy, who has guided more than a dozen shows for Halifax’s Neptune Theatre.
