Upstart Crow Children’s Theatre presents Disney’s Aladdin JR!

Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy-Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.

The story you know and love has been given the royal treatment! Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character. With expanded characters, new songs, and more thrills, this new adaptation of the beloved story will open up “a whole new world” for your young performers!

How to schedule your audition


Register for this production HERE: Registration Page. You will receive a confirmation email with a link to sign up for your audition appointment time.

Prepare a one minute-segment of a song from Aladdin. Bring your karaoke track with you to auditions on a phone, tablet, or other mp3 player. If you do not have a device to play your karaoke track, email the track to by 3:00pm on the day of your audition and we will have it ready to play for you.

Prepare a 1 minute, memorized monologue. It is more important that the monologue is memorized than it is for the monologue to be extensive. Auditionees should take the time to memorize so they are able to showcase their best acting skills rather than focusing on remembering words. Please contact the stage manager, Heidi, at if you have difficulties finding an appropriate monologue.


Dance auditions will be held Saturday, December 1st from 11:30am-12:00pm and Monday December 3rd from 5:30pm-6:00pm
