Disney’s Aladdin announces education programme

First Published 4 October 2016, Last Updated 4 October 2016

Disney’s latest hit West End musical Aladdin has announced a new education programme, comprising curriculum-linked education resources for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils, workshops for pupils aged 7+, and a series of videos which include interviews with the multi award-winning creative team.

Tickets to the magical musical are now available for education groups of 10+, with prices beginning at £22.50 and education workshops are £12.50 per pupil. Booking information can be found here.
Created by the team behind The Lion King’s award-winning education programme, the launch of the Aladdin education programme coincides with seven-time Tony Award®-winning scenic designer Bob Crowley becoming a prescribed practitioner on the AQA Theatre Studies A-Level specification from September 2016. The programme includes:

Pre-show workshops
Aladdin offers a choice of two 90 minute pre-show workshops which will focus on Scene Study and Music and Movement. Participants will work with extracts from the script and explore characterisation and objectives through physicality, voice, status and comedy, and will have the opportunity to learn choreography and vocals from Arabian Nights, the show’s opening number.
 The pre-show workshops are run by Disney Theatrical Teaching Artists who will work alongside teachers to tailor each workshop for their pupils.

Key Stage 2 – Out Of The Lamp
Out Of The Lamp offers a mix of inspirational ideas and suggestions which connect to teaching and learning themes in Key Stage 2 English, Art and Design, Music and PSHE. The activities support learning objectives for Key Stage 2 pupils such as developing language skills and vocabulary, creative writing, and composition of stories, performing, dance and creating costumes.

Key Stage 3 – The Cave Of Wonders
This resource uses Aladdin’s dancing, music, storytelling, and costume design to achieve learning objectives for English, PSHE and Dance. In Cave Of Wonders, pupils will develop their creative writing, build literacy and grammar skills, explore storytelling, and use themes from the production to reflect on issues in their own lives.
In addition to this, the resource offers exclusive behind-the-scenes videos featuring Aladdin’s Associate Choreographer Ben Clare and Production Manager Spencer New as they discuss the processes involved in bringing the show to the stage.

Disney’s Aladdin, already a hit musical on Broadway, takes London theatre audiences into a world filled with beauty, comedy and breath-taking spectacle. It tells the well-known story of a savvy street urchin who finds himself caught up in the nefarious plans of an evil magician, falls for a stunning princess and befriends a wonderfully funny lamp-dwelling magical being.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

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.
