“Salaam and Welcome to Agrabah, the city of Enchantment! Hola y Bienvenidos al Agrabah, La Cuidad del Encanto!”

I have always been a Disney fanatic. I loved the stories, the characters and the heart behind each film. As a Florida native, I grew up fully immersed in the parks and eventually worked for Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line, where I learned the importance of maintaining the integrity of the company and preserving the magic and nostalgia for everyone regardless of age and race.

Like a true 90’s baby, I was obsessed with the animated film Aladdin. Our leading man, Aladdin, born a “street-rat”, charmed us all with his sincerity, determination and honesty as he tried to be someone he wasn’t, in order to win the hand of the beautiful and headstrong Princess Jasmine. Aladdin was so relatable AND thanks to the Genie and a few friends, the film was filled with humor and ignited our fantasies!

Fast forward to last year when I was approached to direct Disney’s Aladdin: Dual Language Edition here at The Firehouse Theatre! I was excited, but also felt the weight and importance of this show. Aladdin: DLE beautifully ties in different cultures, while being understandable to all who watch and sparks the nostalgia of both Spanish and English speakers.

Agrabah, and its residents are the same as you remember, however, there is a little twist! In this story, the peoples of Agrabah used to live in perfect harmony; all citizens bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish. Until the evil Jafar, to increase his own power, wished to divide the land and split the languages. So the common people speak only English and the palace people speak only Spanish. Come along with us on this magic carpet ride and see how true love transcends all languages. Follow along as Genie, with a few other friendly sidekicks you know and love, guide you through this Arabian Night!
