See Aladdin Come to Life at Dawson Middle School

May 11, 2015 11:29AM ● By Audrey Sellers

Disney’s charming tale of adventure, friendship and transformation takes on a glorious new twist at Dawson Middle School from May 13 through May 15.

Dawson Performing Arts Company (DPAC) has created a must-see experience with this culturally rich version of Aladdin. Complete with the intriguing characters we’ve come to love and the enhanced score of the Broadway musical, the goal of DPAC’s production is to introduce audiences to an alluring geographic experience, a vibrant musical score and diverse talent.

Billed as the biggest production ever performed on the DMS stage, Aladdin is primed to live up to the hype. Student involvement is at an all-time high as Aladdin features 30 performers, 15 technical crew members, as well as poster art and stage sets designed and crafted by Dawson Art students.

Director and theater arts instructor, Michael McNay, set out to make this the most inclusionary production in the school’s history.

“Not every student has an interest in being a performer,” says McNay, “but the beauty of theatre is that there is a wide range of needs and interest areas that need students of all skill sets. Artists, engineers, historians and writers all have a place in the world of theatre, and we want to be able to develop all of the students into better versions of themselves.” 

With only three shows, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to treat yourself to an evening of magical entertainment while supporting students.

Reserved tickets are available online at Ticket Tracker

Tickets range from $5 - $20. General seating tickets will be sold at the door.
