This Coming Saturday: Aladdin! presented by the Hampstead Stage Company

Join us this Saturday at 11am in the Meeting Room as  the Hampstead Stage Company presents Aladdin! This classic tale is an exotic adventure based on The Tales of the Arabian Nights. It is about a poor young boy, Aladdin, who must go out and earn money for his family’s survival. While traveling throughout the country selling his wares, he is fooled by an evil magician, Salabin, who convinces him to find an antique oil lamp. Aladdin rubs the old lamp and releases a Genie that can make all his wishes come true. Now Aladdin must outsmart the magician and save his family! Through this play, we hope to encourage the students to rise above the odds and to follow their dreams.
