High School Students experience the magic of Aladdin on Broadway at Disneyland

I’ll be honest one of my big regrets about my high school experience is that my choir class never made a trip to Disneyland to perform in their Disney Performing Arts program (or its equivalent *cough* 30 *cough* years ago). But there are thousands of kids every year who won’t have that regret because they’re “going to Disneyland!”

Recently the show choir of Cesar Chavez High School from Stockton, CA made the trip where they performed on stage and then workshopped with some of Disneyland’s own entertainment team. They also got a big surprise when cast members from the North American Tour of Disney’s “Aladdin” made a surprise visit to their workshop.

The students were able to meet Adam Jacobs, who originated the role of Aladdin on Broadway and is now on tour with the show and Reggie de Leon, who originated the role of Iago on tour. Jacobs and de Leon gave the students valuable career advice and a look at what it’s like to make a career of performing on stage.

Aladdin is performing at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, until March 31.
