The Rock Port High School Drama Department will present Craig Sodaro’s adaptation of Aladdin, directed by Ms. Kerri Acton. Join in the fun the evening of Friday, May 5, 2017. The stage will be set and the show starts at 7 p.m. The History Club will be hosting a free will donation baked potato bar for your dining pleasure in the commons of the High School prior to the play. Admission to the play is a free will donation for RPHS Drama Department.
The story of the play… Romance, mystery, and more fun than a magic carpet ride—that’s what makes this richly imaginative story of Aladdin such a classic. In this adaptation, you’ll find colorful characters including snake charmer, Yahoo and his pet snake, who serve as narrators; an evil magician, El Kahsid; the beautiful princess, Celestia; spoiled, obnoxious Gorgon who wants to marry the princess; the Lamp and Ring Genies and their “Wish-Granting Associates;” the Poetic Cave Creeps; and finally Aladdin himself who starts as a lazy, insolent boy, but finally proves himself to be a prince.
