“Extravagant… fabulous, Aladdin defies expectations. Sly Disney alchemy with an infectious spirit and relentless razzle dazzle.” —The New York Times
So far so good for Disney's Broadway spectacular Aladdin which has been nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
The musical comedy based on the Academy Award-winning animated film opened on March 20th at Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre. Participants in Voices on Broadway 2015 can take this very stage and part of a massed curtain call performance with the Aladdin cast.

This is the first (and only) event of its kind to offer students the opportunity to perform with a Broadway cast in a massed curtain call performance, experience a Broadway-style audition, and participate in our special performance clinic. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to celebrate music, theatre and the arts in one event.
In 2015, participants can choose between Aladdin and Cinderella, the first time Voices on Broadway has offered two shows. Past shows include West Side Story, Lion King, and Mary Poppins.
