Youth Theatre Carson City presents 'Aladdin and His Wonderful, Magical Lamp' this weekend

Event Date: 
January 11, 2013 - 7:00pm

Youth Theatre Carson City is excited to announce our upcoming production of "Aladdin and His Wonderful, Magical Lamp," a magical adaptation of the classic tale, Friday through Sunday Jan. 11-13 at the Carson City Community Center and Jan. 18 at Piper’s Opera House in Virginia City.

The cast and crew are comprised of over 70 local children ages 5 to 18, who play all the classic characters including Aladdin, his pet monkey Alakazam, The Princess Jasmine and her handmaidens, the evil Jammal and his sister Halima, and not just one…but 3 Genies!

One Arabian night, long ago, a street urchin named Aladdin meets the beautiful Princess Jasmine and vows he will marry her. But the evil magician, Jammal, and his wicked sister have other plans. With the help of his friends and a little bit of magic, courtesy of a few genies, can Aladdin save the day?

This musical fantasy will delight audiences of all ages. Starring in the title role of Aladdin are Jackson Jensen, 13, and Serena Dantzler, 10, of Carson City. Joining them are a host of colorful characters including Juliet Favero, 13, and Rebecca Trejo, 11, as Princess Jasmine; Kayleigh Remington, 14, and Willard Franklin, 12, as the evil Jammal; and Daniella Carpenter, 10, Brianda Diaz, 12, and Sara Session, 15, as the magic genies.

Youth Theatre Carson City is a new and exciting youth theatre company operating primarily at the Carson City Community Center as part of the Carson City Recreation Department and in partnership with the Bob Boldrick Theatre.

This summer we enjoyed a successful run of our first production, "The Wizard of Oz," and we’re excited to be returning to the stage with another magical tale. Our mission is to provide a safe, inclusive environment for young people and their families to explore, create, learn and grow through quality theatrical experiences. Youth Theatre Carson City produces three to five fully staged theatrical productions per year featuring all-youth casts.

Youth Theatre Carson City was founded by Northern Nevada native, Andie Anderson. Anderson has been a part of the arts community in Northern Nevada for over twenty years. She just recently earned her Master of Arts Degree in Theatre Education from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts and is ecstatic to be back in her hometown sharing her love of the arts with the young people of this community.

Aladdin and His Wonderful, Magical Lamp will run Jan. 11-12 at 7pm and Jan. 12-13 at 2pm in the Bob Boldrick Theatre at the Carson City Community Center located at 851 E. William Street in Carson City, NV; and January 18 at 7pm at Piper’s Opera House located at 12 N. B Street in Virginia City, NV.
