Prairie Fire Children's Theatre to present 'Alladin'
Take the family on a mystical carpet ride this weekend as young people from across the Midwest team up with three professional actors to present Prairie Fire Children's Theatre's original musical version of Alladin and His Magic Lamp, the culmination of a week-long theater camp.
Based on a tale from The Arabian Nights, Alladin is a musical journey told with Prairie Fire's special twists. After accidentally discovering the Genie of the Lamp, Alladin is thrust into a journey to escape his own greed, ward off the evil magician and regain the respect of his family and friends.
Alladin is Prairie Fire Children's Theatre's 26th annual show held in Barrett. Professionals Chris Rosser, Jeremy Day and Elizabeth Dunn have been working with the cast throughout the week. Day will take on the role of the evil magician, and Dunn will portray the Genie of the Lamp.
The remaining roles, such as Princess Serena, Zanda the Tiger and the merchants of the bazaar, will be portrayed by young people ages 7-18 who attended the camp this past week.
Campers this year represent the Minnesota communities of Alexandria, Kensington, Ashby, St. Cloud and more.
All performances are at West Central Area Secondary School auditorium in Barrett. Performances are Friday and Saturday, August 10-11 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, August 12 at 1 p.m. Tickets are available at the door one hour prior to show time. The cost is $9 for adults and $6 for 18 years and younger. Concessions will be available at all performances.
