CAST REQUIREMENTS – large ensemble of kids and teens

Babkak, Omar, and Kassim – Aladdin’s three loyal and playful pals. Babkak is the Agrabahn foodie who loves to snack, kindhearted Omar has a sensitive soul, and stubborn Kassim yearns to be a leader.

Geniethe fast-talking, fun-loving, scene- stealing wisecracker who lives in the lamp and yearns to be free. Genie needs great comic timing and a flashy and fun sense of showmanship.

Isir, Manal, and RajahJasmine’s devoted attendants, keep the Princess grounded with their honesty and openness. Isir, whose name means “inspiration,” is optimistic; Manal, “achievement,” is assertively encouraging; and Rajah, “hope,” is the most protective.

Jafarthe power-hungry and crooked Grand Vizier. He has a two-faced personality – loyal advisor to the Sultan and scheming villain – and has delicious comedic moments with his lackey, Iago.

Jasminethe Princess of Agrabah, 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. Should be able to portray both the romantic lead and a young woman caught between her responsibilities to her people and to herself.
