Indianapolis, IN– Summer Stock Stage will present Aladdin Jr at Ayres Auditorium at Park Tudor School June 21-25. Wednesday preview and Thursday through Saturday evening performances are at 7:00 pm. Saturday and Sunday matinees are at 2:00 pm. More than 50 of the most talented students from central Indiana have been rehearsing with director Emily Ristine Holloway, music director Jeanne Bowling, and choreographer Mariel Greenlee, to mount this fully-staged production. These students, ages 13-19, come from 25+ different public, private, and charter schools from throughout central Indiana. They will be joined by 30 younger students from Summer Stock Stage Academy who will be featured in smaller roles. These are some of the best musical theater performers in the area. Many plan to continue their theater studies in college, while others have entirely different plans. All come together in a professional, collaborative environment to produce outstanding theater each summer.
