Aladdin: Another Fairly Tall Tale! – REVIEW

home_buttons20

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island has garnered quite a reputation for its strong culture and influence in the arts. It’s most recent production is certainly no exception!

Aladdin: Another Fairly Tall Tale, which just finished it’s run at Charlottetown’s Confederation Center of the Arts in its Homburg Theater this past weekend, was a perfect blend of stirring vocals, “island” flavor, and comedy for all ages!

It’s the Aladdin we all know, and love, but with an island twist!

The cast features 70, that includes both homegrown talent, as well as off island.  The cast began rehearsals in the fall of this year, and their hard work surely shows in the quality of production, songs, and dance and especially the jokes that had audiences screaming with laughter.

Personally, I don’t think I’d laughed so hard in a long time.  You surely received a huge dose of Christmas spirit!

Gabriel Antonacci (Six year veteran of the Charlottetown Festival) shined as Aladdin! Réjean Cournoyer (Three year veteran of the Charlottetown Festival) kept the crowd captivated and engaged the entire evening. Graham Putnam as Widow Twanky was pure genius and totally hilarious as he provided that perfect dose of the island way of life. Sarah MacPhee returned this year reprising her role of the Town Crier, and Maria Campbell who was cast as Princess Jasmine performed beautifully- vocally as well as in her acting ability.  Also featured in this incredible cast were Gordon Cobb (as Genie), Dennis Trainor (Baron Wasteland), and Melissa MacKinnon (Genie of the Ring, Scheherazade)

A perfect blending of the elements of the classic fairy tale and PEI culture, Aladdin is just pure fun and excitement for everyone.  It felt like a local  company production produced and presented at Broadway caliber!

We, at Atlantic Canada Rocks are already anxious to hear about next years’ production and what it will offer! stay tuned!
