Aladdin extends booking to 2017

First Published 27 May 2016, Last Updated 27 May 2016

There may still be a few hours wait until Disney’s Aladdin makes its West End debut, but the Broadway hit is already set for success, announcing it has extended its London run into 2017.

Ahead of its first performance at the Prince Edward Theatre tonight, the spectacular stage adaptation of Disney’s hit film has added a further four months to its run, extending to 11 February.

Featuring all of Alan Menken’s classic songs from the 1992 film, as well as new tunes written by the eight-time Academy Award winner, Aladdin tells the famous story of the titular street urchin who falls for a princess, is swindled by an evil sorcerer and has his life changed immeasurably when he stumbles across a wish-granting genie.

London theatre fans now have longer to catch Tony and Olivier Award-winning director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw’s Whole New World of magic, romance, friendship and adventure as The Book Of Mormon director gets set to replicate the show’s huge New York success on this side of the pond.

Audiences will be treated to a touch of Broadway in the West End premiere, as former NY cast member Trevor Dion Nicholas gets set to make his London debut as the show’s Genie alongside Dean John-Wilson and Jade Ewen as the show’s heroes Aladdin and Jasmine.

The company will be well prepared for their first performance tonight following a staggering 315 hours of rehearsals. Their performances will be given extra sparkle with 68 tonnes of scenery and 337 custom-designed costumes ready to dazzle, not least due to the millions of Swarovski crystals that have been used in their creation.

Disney’s Aladdin will be hoping to cast its magic over critics when the show officially opens on 15 June after a fortnight of previews.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
