Aladdin: Male
Grades 8 - 12

“A Whole New World”

I can open your eyes, take you wonder by wonder,

Over, sideways and under on a magic carpet ride.

A whole new world…a new fantastic point of view.

No one to tell us no or where to go

Or say we’re only dreaming.

 

 

Jasmine: Female
Grades 8 - 12

“A Whole New World”

Unbelievalbe sights, indescribable feeling,

Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling

Through and endless diamond sky.

A whole new world…A hundred thousand things to see.

I’m like a shooting star, I’ve come so far.

I can’t go back to where I used to be…

 

 

 

Genie: Male/Female
Grades 8 - 12

“Friend Like Me”

Mister Aladdin, sir, what will your pleasure be?

Let me  take your order, jot it down.

You ain’t never had a friend like me. No, no, no!

Life if your restaurant and I’m your maitre d.

Come on, whisper what it is you want.

You ain’t never had a friend like me.

 

 

 

Jafar: Male

Grades 8 - 12

Prince Ali, yes it is he,

But not as you know him.

Read my lips and come to grips

With reality.

Yes meet a blast from your past,

Whose lies were too good to last.

Say hello to your precious Prince Ali!

 

 

Grade 3 - 7

“Arabian Nights”:

Arabian nights…like Arabian days.

More often than not are hotter than hot

In a lotta good ways…

Arabian nights…’neath Arabian moons.

A fool off his guard could fall and fall hard

Out there on the dunes.

 

 

*7th Grade Girls who'd like to be considered for Isir, Manal or Rajah can opt to sing the Jasmine lyrics to "A Whole New World"

Character Breakdown

 

 

Aladdin: Male

Grade 8 -12

A poor street urchin, He’s the thief with a heart of gold,

Looking for an actor with the versatility to play both the playful prankster and romantic lead.

Vocal Range: G2 - E4

 

 

 

Jasmine: Female

Grade 8 - 12

The Princess of Agrabah, Jasmine longs to experience the world outside the palace walls. Curious and assertive, she knows what she wants and craves the freedom to make her own choices.

Vocal Range: G3 - E5

 

 

 

Genie: Male/Female

Grade 8 - 12

BIG STAGE PRESENCE

Looking for a performer with great comic timing and a flashy and fun sense of showmanship.

Vocal Range: G2 - D#4

 

 

 

Jafar: Male

Grade 8 -12

Jafar is the power-hungry and crooked Grand Vizier.

Looking for a strong actor who can portray both sides of Jafar’s two-faced personality:

– loyal advisor to the Sultan

-  scheming villain

as well as pull off great comedic moments with his lackey, Iago.

Vocal Range: Bb2 - Eb4

 

 

 

Iago: Male/Female

Grade 7 - 12

Iago is the fawning and funny sidekick to Jafar.

Looking for a CHARACTER ACTOR who can execute this lackey’s many sarcastic asides with comedic flair. Character voice encouraged.

(Iago is a person, not a parrot in this version of Aladdin JR)

Vocal Range: Bb2 - E4

 

 

 

Babkak, Omar and Kassim

Male/Female; Grade 8 - 12

STRONG SINGER/DANCERS, EXPRESSIVE

Aladdin’s three loyal and playful pals.

Babkak - Agrabahn foodie who loves to snack,

Omar - kindhearted with a sensitive soul,

Kassim - stubborn, yearns to be a leader.

Vocal Range: G2 - E4

 

 

 

Isir, Manal, and Rajah

Female, Grades 7 -12

As Jasmine’s devoted attendants, they keep the Princess grounded with their honesty and friendship.

Isir, whose name means “inspiration,” is optimistic;

Manal, “achievement,” is assertively encouraging;

Rajah, “hope,” is the most protective.

Vocal Range: B3 - Eb5

 

 

 

Sultan: Male

Sultan, the warm-hearted ruler who dotes on his daugther, is committed to upholding the ancient laws of Agrabah.

Looking for an actor who can play a convincing father figure. :)

Vocal Range: Ab3 - C4

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately, there are no LEAD roles available for the younger groups this time. This production has no monkey, no parrot and no tiger. The script lists these roles as people, who’d need to somewhat match the age of Aladdin, Jasmine and Jafar.

Of course, there may be small singing lines or speaking lines available in their groups, here and there, but they’d be auditioning, primarily, for chorus or dancer chorus.

CALLBACK MATERIALS

 

 Sides

 

Genie:

 

GENIE: Hello everybody! Did ya miss me?

 

ALADDIN: I think I might be hallucinating…

 

GENIE: Hallucinating? Impossible! I may be dreamy, but I’m no

           hallucination.

 

ALADDIN: Who are you?

 

GENIE: Who am I? Who am I? Isn’t it obvious? The Genie is

            here!

 

ALADDIN: So you’re from inside the lamp?

 

GENIE: No, I’m from Cleveland. Of course I’m from inside the

           lamp! And you are the master of said lamp, so you get

           three wishes!

 

ALADDIN: You’re gonna give me three wishes?

 

GENIE: And I thought the echo in the lamp was bad! Try to keep

           up, kid! I got a production number to get to!

 

ALADDIN: You mean ... I can wish for anything I want?

 

GENIE: That’s right! But ixnay on wishing for more wishes. You

           got a name, kid?

 

ALADDIN: Aladdin.

 

GENIE: Mind if I call you Al... Al? Why don’t you just ruminate

           whilst I illuminate the poss-o- bilities!

 

GENIE: So, what do you say we put the focus on the hocus

           pocus?what do you want, kid?

 

ALADDIN: You’re gonna grant me any three wishes, huh?

 

GENIE: That’s right! But with the lamp comes great

            responsibility! So let’s go over the rulebook, shall we?

            Rule Number One: I can’t kill anybody. Rule Number

            Two: I can’t bring anybody back from the dead. And Rule

            Number Three: I can’t make anybody fall in love with

            anybody else. Get it?

 

ALADDIN: Got it.

 

GENIE: Good.

 

ALADDIN: Some all powerful genie you are. You probably

               couldn’t even get us out of this cave.

 

GENIE: Whoa there! So that’s how it’s gonna be? Well, watch

            this!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Aladdin/Jasmine:

 

 

JASMINE: Do you think we lost them?

 

ALADDIN: Don’t worry, they’ll never find us up here. So... where

               you from?

 

JASMINE: I thought you had me all figured out.

 

ALADDIN: Well ... you’re definitely not a local girl ... which

               means you must be on the run from something.

 

JASMINE: My father.

 

ALADDIN: Running away from home?

 

JASMINE: Running away from life. He’s trying to force me to

               marry against my will.

 

ALADDIN: That’s terrible. You should be free to make your own

               choices, right?

 

JASMINE: Right. (looks around, shocked by the poverty) Do you

               live here?

 

ALADDIN: Oh, I know it’s not much to look at. But how about the

               view? Look how beautiful the palace is.

 

JASMINE (deadpan): Spectacular.

 

ALADDIN: Not impressed?

 

JASMINE: It’s beautiful, but why should some people get to live

               in such splendor, when others...(looks around again)...

               don’t? That’s not fair.

 

ALADDIN: Welcome to my life! (looks out at the palace) I wonder

                what it would be like to live there, to have servants

                and valets... and a bed.

JASMINE: And people who keep you locked behind walls and then

               tell you what to do and who to love.

 

ALADDIN: It’s better than here. Always scraping for food and

               dodging the guards.

 

JASMINE: You’re not free to make your own choices.

 

ALADDIN: Sometimes you feel so…

 

JASMINE: You’re just…

 

ALADDIN, JASMINE: Trapped.

 

(ALADDIN and JASMINE smile as they look out toward the horizon.)

 

ALADDIN: Have you ever imagined what it would be like to take

               off and never look back?

 

JASMINE: Only every hour of every day.

Callback Lyrics

 

 

 Aladdin:

“Proud Of Your Boy”

But someday and soon…

I’ll make you proud of your boy.

Though I can’t make myself taller

Or smarter or handsome or wise.

I’ll do my best. What else can I do?

Since I wasn’t born perfect, like Dad or you…

Mom, I will try to, try hard to make you

Proud of your boy.

 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

  Jasmine

 “These Palace Walls”

What if I dared? What if I tried?

Am I prepared…for what’s outside?

Why shouldn’t I fly so far from here?

Something awaits beyond these palace walls.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

JAFAR Side 1

 

SULTAN: Ah, Jafar, there you are. Are you aware of a boy

             arrested in the marketplace?

 

JAFAR: Yes, Your Majesty. Razoul brought the Princess’s

           kidnapper to me.

 

JASMINE: Aladdin didn’t kidnap me. I ran away.

 

SULTAN: You ran away?!

 

JAFAR: Oh dear. I’m afraid the boy’s sentence has already been

           carried out.

JASMINE: What sentence?

 

JAFAR: Why, death, of course.

 

JASMINE: What? How could you?!? He did’t do anything wrong!

 

                                      (Jasmine Exits)

 

JAFAR: My most abject apologies, Your Majesty.

 

SULTAN: Jafar, this is an outrage! From now on, you are to

             discuss sentencing of prisoners with me! (He Exits)

 

JAFAR: If only I’d gotten that lamp, I could be finished with this

           constant humiliation once and for all!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

JAFAR SIDE 2

 

IAGO: What’s in the book, oh Devious One?

 

JAFAR: The key to a lamp that contains an all-powerful genie!

           Once I have it in my grasp, worries about the Princess’s

           suitors will be a distant memory. I’ll have the entire

           kingdom at my mercy!

 

IAGO: How do we get our hands on this lamp?

 

JAFAR (opens a book and reads an incantation):

Rules of the darkest night,

Grant us now a second sight.

Guards of storms and angry tides,

Show us where the lamp resides!

 

 

VOICE: The lamp you seek waits in the Cave of Wonders,

            beneath the Great Dune. But be warned, only the Diamond in the Rough may enter – the one whose

             worth lies deep within!

 

JAFAR: And who is this Diamond in the Rough?

 

(A vision of ALADDIN appears.)

 

VOICE: Find the Diamond in the Rough and make sure he

           touches only the lamp!

 

JAFAR (to IAGO): Once we’ve got that boy, we’ve got our lamp!

                          And I will finally be Sultan of Agrabah!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

IAGO MATERIAL

 

 

IAGO: We’ve got problems, sire! Major problems!

 

JAFAR: Have you forgotten how to address me, Iago?

 

IAGO: Oh, Wonderful One! Oh, Fantastic and Powerful One!

 

JAFAR: Better. Now, what were you squawking about?

 

IAGO: Princess Jasmine has been talking with Prince Abdullah for over an hour.

 

JAFAR: An hour?? But if she chooses a suitor, he becomes the next sultan…

 

IAGO: That’s why I said we got problems!!

 

Prince Ali Reprise

Yes, meet a blast from your past,

Whose lies were too good to last.

Say hello to your precious Prince Ali!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

SULTAN Material

 

SULTAN: This is preposterous! Clearly I’ve spoiled the girl. Well,

              all that’s going to change. From now on, I intend to

              reign over her with an iron fist!

 

(JASMINE enters.)

 

JASMINE: Father?

 

SULTAN (instantly doting): Yes, pumpkin? (catches himself) What

             did you say to that poor prince?

 

JASMINE: I told him the truth: that if he marries me, he’ll get an

               equal partner with an equal say. Why do I even have

               to marry at all? What’s wrong with a woman running

               the kingdom?

 

SULTAN: Jasmine, you’re a princess. The law states that you

             must marry a prince by the next moon. We must uphold

             the ancient ways, dearest.

 

JASMINE: If I have to marry someone I don’t love, then maybe I

              don’t want to be a princess anymore.

 

SULTAN: It’s not just the law. I won’t be around forever, and I

             want to make sure you’re taken care of.

 

JASMINE: I can take care of myself, thank you!

 

(JASMINE exits.)

 

SULTAN (flustered, following JASMINE): Jasmine, if you don’t

             choose a husband tomorrow, I will choose one for you!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

KASSIM: So, what did you steal this time?

 

ALADDIN: Steal? I don't know what you're talking about, Kassim.

 

BABKAK: Come on, Aladdin. You've taught us every swindle we

              know.

 

OMAR: Babkak’s right. You're the best thief this side of the River

           Jordan.

 

ALADDIN: That’s all behind me now, Omar. I promised my

               parents before they died that I'd never steal again.

 

KASSIM (pulls a loaf of bread of out ALADDIN's satchel): So

            what's this?

 

ALADDIN (grabs the bread back): Food doesn't count. A guy's

               gotta eat.

 

OMAR: Maybe we should all clean up our act. Every time I pick a

           picket, I feel awful.

 

BABKAK: Falafel? Did somebody say falafel?

 

KASSIM: The way I see it, we're just stealing from the rich and

              giving to the poor. It just so happens that we're the

              poor.

 

ALADDIN: I don't know, Kassim. When people see me, I don't

               want the first thing they think to be "thief."

 

KASSIM: People don't think that.

 

RAZOUL: Thief!

 

KASSIM: Of course, I could be wrong. Time to run!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

ISIR, MANAL, RAJAH Material

 

ISIR: What did the Sultan say?

 

JASMINE: That if I don’t pick a suitor, he will chose one for me.

 

ISIR: Uh-oh.

 

MANAL: Yeah…I don’t see that going well.

 

JASMINE: All my life he surrounds me with knowledge of the

               world and then he walls me up inside this palace! It’s

               like I’m a prisoner!

 

RAJAH (looks around): In a really, really nice prison!

 

JASMINE: More than anything, I want to see the world. But

               father cares more about ancient laws than his own

               daughter.

 

RAJAH: Princess, the outside world might be overwhelming for

            someone like you.

 

MANAL: Oh, I think a little excursion would do her some good.

 

RAJAH: You do?

 

ISIR: Sure! A taste of what’s beyond these palace walls could be

         just what a princess needs.
