Aladdin, Crown Theatre Perth

I do like going to the theatre, I particularly enjoy musical theatre. There is something magical in suspending all of your daily thoughts and worries and just immersing yourself in a land where every action causes a character to burst into song. On Sunday night my daughter and myself took my young Granddaughters to see Disney’s stage adaptation of Aladdin at the Crown Theatre which is now running until the end of October.


The theatre looked to be a full house; possibly due to the hype surrounding the show and maybe also the release of some reduced price tickets. We took our seats and settled in, surrounded by the other excited patrons waiting expectantly for the all singing, all dancing spectacular to begin.


The music started and the curtain rose and the story of Aladdin and Princess Jasmine began.

The show is a very slick and professional performance, updated and tailored to accommodate the city it is being performed in. The sets are amazing, especially the opulent golden Cave of Wonders where Aladdin first meets the Genie and we get to see the iconic song and dance routine “You ain’t never had a friend like me “ which drew terrific applause from the audience.

The costumes are breathtakingly beautiful, vibrant colours covered in millions of crystals to the catch the lights. I have no idea how the magic carpet flys, but it does! and the scene where Aladdin and Jasmine fly through the night sky is purely magical. My usually fidgety 5-year-old granddaughter sat mesmerised throughout the whole show- no mean feat. The whole cast and orchestra are outstanding, but my own personal favourite would have to be Gareth Jacobs as the Genie. He is funny, camp and completely over the top and I could not help but think what a fabulous nod to the late Robin Williams character he played.


By the end of the show I think the whole audience had been entranced by the story and spectacle that was Aladdin, and as we departed the theatre to head back to real life it was wonderful to see so many happy faces and complete strangers chatting about the wonderful time they had had that evening.
