Raymond Case Elementary School Presents Disney's Aladdin Jr.

Raymond Case Elementary School Presents Disney's Aladdin Jr.

I sit in Raymond Case Elementary School multipurpose room ready to see Disney's Aladdin, Jr presented by the Raymond Case Drama Club. It's a full house. The lights dim to a beautiful made set of the marketplace Agrabah and palace where Princess Jasmine (played by Alex Taniguchi) is ready to battle with her dad the Sultan (played by Kevin Bali). The costumes, makeup and props are of a broadway show caliber. I think, "this is not an amateur musical" as the genie enters played by Annika Tamaki dressed in blue foundation asking if her pants make her look fat. The music and singing are excellent and the crowd cheers, laughs and comes to there feet as the final act ends.~~Janine King
