If you don’t know the story it goes like this: “Once upon a time, in the happy land of Euphoria there lived two unhappy people. One, a powerful and evil Vizier who wished to rule the kingdom, the other a boy named Aladdin. Locked deep in the King’s vault lies the answer to their dreams.
“A small, magic lamp with the power of wishes. Aladdin wished for things to be different, but as the saying goes, you should be careful what you wish for…”
The strong cast are all professional multi talented actors.
