Merry, Mystical "Aladdin" Musical Opens

All aboard for a magical carpet ride. "Aladdin" is about to tickle your funny bone at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. This season opener for the Kelsey Kids Series is presented by Kaleidoscope Theatre on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is conveniently located on Mercer's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

In this musical tale of mischief and merriment, the scrappy Aladdin gets caught up in royal intrigue with a silly sultan, his evil advisor Mephustas, the beautiful Princess Jasmine, and a powerful genie. Mephustas is on a quest for a magical lamp that will enable him to seize control of the kingdom. Children and families will relish the journey that takes Aladdin and his companions through the mystical marketplace of Bazrad, exotic caves of jewels and more. A happy ending is guaranteed!
