Casting has been announced for the 5th Avenue Theatre’s original production of “Aladdin” this July. The new stage musical is adapted from Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated feature film.

The show will feature Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed as Aladdin and Jasmine, James Monroe Iglehart as the Genie, and Seattle mainstay Seán G. Griffin as the Sultan. Jonathan Freeman takes the stage to embody the role he originally voiced for the film, the Royal Vizier Jafar. He is joined by comedic favorite Don Darryl Rivera as Iago. Aladdin restores a trio of characters originally conceived by the film’s creators: Omar, Babkak, and Kassim, played by Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Brian Gonzales, and Brandon O’Neill, respectively. Broadway’s Casey Nicholaw will direct. With book by Chad Beguelin and hit songs including “Friend Like Me,” “Prince Ali,” and the Oscar-winning “A Whole New World” by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Tim Rice, Aladdin will enchant audiences of all ages.
