Character Breakdown

ALADDIN Aladdin is the title character and carries most of the show. Cast your most charming student with the best vocal and acting abilities. Versatility is necessary in order to play the slick prankster and romantic lead.

ENSEMBLE Ensemble consists of Townspeople, Shop Owners, Harem Girls, Princes, and others. There are opportunities for many featured moments for ensemble members.
GENIE Genie is the fast-talking, scene-stealing funny man, the ability to do comedy is most important.

IAGO Iago is a great comedic role. Like the Genie, he or she need not be the strongest singer. Comedic skills are a must. Iago should bring human characteristics to Jafar’s sidekick.

JAFAR Jafar is our villain. Jafar should be more of a caricature of classic evil villains than someone really scary. Jafar and Iago also share some comedic moments.

JASMINE Jasmine should be cast as feisty and rebellious, yet genuinely sweet and somewhat naïve. Jasmine is a future leader with strong opinions on how things should be done, and the audience needs to see this side of her, as well as the side that Aladdin falls for.

MAGIC CARPET The Magic Carpet works best when treated as a character in the show.

NARRATORS The Narrators can be any combination of boys and girls. All should be able to sing well and be able to speak clearly since they are responsible for setting scenes and advancing the plot.

RAZOUL The actor should have good comedic skills and  can carry a tune. Razoul should be played as highly incompetent – always making mistakes.
SULTAN The Sultan should be able to play a father figure convincingly. Although a bit scattered, he needs to be able to portray love and care for Jasmine.
