Osborne School presents ‘Aladdin’

Osborne put on a Christmas performance of ‘Aladdin’ in December. Both performances were a sell out and met rave reviews. As with all Osborne performances, the show was put together in a week. All students took part in some way- from the prop making, to the lighting and scenery manoeuvres.

The performance began with the Year 7 dance ‘Get down with the Genie’ to open the show. The main cast were excellent, and very funny. They clearly enjoyed taking part. Stan and Lauren were the perfect double actas Aladdin and Abu, up against the evil Jafar, played by Jacob, and his evil crew. A group of fine suitors tried to wow Jasmine played by Mia, strutting their stuff on the red carpet and getting a huge round of applause.

Jasmine and Aladdin met in the market place, which ended in a guards chase, a busy scene with a lively choreography. Aladdin was then lead to the golden cave where he met the Genie and her crew played by Imogen, Kieron and Mason. A Shine dance was provided by year 9 who all looked fabulous in their sparkly costumes. The Genie, dancers and her crew did a superb job of dressing the Prince to a very apt soundtrack by Prince.

Prince Ali was paraded into town by some very funny camels (16ES) but were there 2 or 4 or 8? Nobody will ever know. This lead the rest of Osborne College into the wonderful procession of Prince Ali which providedtrumpets, torches, ribbons, colour and movement.

Prince Ali and Jasmine went on a magic carpet ride and witnessed ‘A Whole New World’ in a shower of stars and chiffon (Yr 8). Jafar temporarily got the power (and some cool hip-hop moves) before being banished intoa lamp as a genie himself.

The Sultan was so impressed with Aladdin he allowed Jasmine to rule. The whole cast had a party with year 10 and 11 to ‘Spice up your life’. After the bows Aladdin decided that he would use his last wish to freethe Genie ( all thanks to a crowd surfing lamp!).

The whole school put all their energy and enthusiasm into both performances and did a sterling job. We can’t wait until the next one!
