Communion of Saints presents 'Aladdin' May 18 and 19

Communion of Saints students rehearsing "Aladdin."

Now in its eighth season, the Communion of Saints drama program presents “Aladdin”—a story based on the folk tale Aladdin, which Disney adapted for the screen in 1992. The musical tale, set in Agrabah, centers around Princess Jasmine and her quest for a spouse. Not happy with her father's choices, she takes to the streets where a chance encounter with a bread thief begins the adventure.

Scoundrels, buffoonery and mayhem, peppered with some trickery, provide a magic carpet ride to a whole new world of singing, dancing and fun.

The production features students from kindergarten through eighth grade, and beautiful costumes and scenery, all under the guidance of Lydia Chanenka, the show's director.

“Aladdin” will be performed on Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19, at 7 p.m., in Powers Hall at Saint Ann Church, 2175 Coventry Road, in Cleveland Heights. Admission is $5 for those 13 and older. Admission is free for those who are under 12 and accompanied by an adult.
