Character Descriptions:

Aladdin, a poor street urchin, longs to make his mother proud, but sometimes loses his way. He’s the thief with a heart of gold, a playful prankster and the romantic lead.

Jasmine, the Princess of Agrabah, longs to experience the world outside the palace walls. Curious and assertive, she knows what she wants and craves the freedom to make her own choices. She is caught between her responsibilities to her people and to herself. The other romantic lead.

Genie is the fast-talking, fun-loving, scene-stealing wisecracker who lives in the lamp and yearns to be free. Genie needs to have great comedic timing and a flashy and fun sense of showmanship.

Jafar is the power-hungry and crooked Grand Vizier. Jafar has a two-faced personality: loyal advisor to the Sultan and scheming villain. Must also have comedic timing with Iago.
Iago is a parrot, and the fawning and funny sidekick to Jafar. Iago is very sarcastic with a comedic flare.
Sultan, the warm-hearted ruler who dotes on his daughter, is committed to upholding the ancient laws of Agrabah. A fatherly figure.

Babkak, Omar, and Kassim are Aladdin’s three loyal and playful pals. Babkak is the Agrabahn foodie who loves to snack, kindhearted Omar has a sensitive soul, and stubborn Kassim yearns to be a leader and a is a little more sensible than his friends. Need to sing harmony. Have to do armed stage combat.

Isir, Manal, and Rajah, Jasmine’s devoted attendants and confidants, keep the Princess grounded with their honesty and openness. Isir, whose name means “inspiration,” is optimistic; Manal, whose name means “achievement,” is assertively encouraging; and Rajah, “hope,” is the most protective. Need to sing harmony.

Razoul, the rough and commanding head of the palace guards, answers to Jafar. Has to do armed stage combat with his fellow guards.

Other various Ensemble roles. Some roles have lines, some have singing solos, some have dance solos, but all ensemble members sing and dance!
