It’s the stunning musical that introduced us to a whole new world of wonder in the West End. And now, as Disney’s Aladdin prepares to celebrate its second London birthday, the show has announced that fourteen new cast members will join the company.
New additions to the cast show include Fred Johanson (Jesus Christ Superstar, National Tour) as Jafar and Julian Capolei (in his West End debut) as Omar, while original cast member Jermaine Woods (Bugsy Malone, Lyric Hammersmith) will play Iago, having previously covered the role. Matthew Croke will continue to star as the titular savvy street urchin, having joined the company last year, and original London cast members Jade Ewen (Jasmine) and Trevor Dion Nicholas (Genie) will also carry on in their roles.

Disney’s Aladdin began performances at the Prince Edward Theatre on 27 May 2016, officially opening on 15 June of that year. A tale of magical genies, deceptive sorcerers and exciting adventure, the show sees a streetwise urchin fall for a stunning princess – only to fall into the nefarious scheme of an evil magician.
Aladdin features the timeless songs from the 1992 animated film as well as new music written by Tony, Olivier and eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Beauty And The Beast, Newsies, Little Shop Of Horrors). The show is currently booking until 29 September.
