As many as 800 students of the junior school of Strawberry Fields High School created magic on stage, as they presented a 115-minute musical theatrical presentation, Aladdin, at Tagore Theatre Tuesday morning. Aladdin is one of Disney’s most popular and enduring tales that lends itself almost magically to a dramatic interpretation, and world-over, students have adapted it to suit their cultural and social sensibilities. The story of Aladdin, an urchin, falling in love with Princess Jasmine, who he cannot marry because of the difference in their social status is replete with pathos, longing, and anguish, till Aladdin finds a magic lamp that turns him into a prince. But then there is another difficult test awaiting him—to valiantly thwart the negative efforts of the evil Jafar. Thus, the fairy tale, with all its twists and turns, ends on a happy note.
