Gifft Hill School Students Performing “Aladdin and His Magic Lamp” Jan. 21 and 22

GHS student actors (L to R) Mariah Scheer, Saaliyah Ali, Genesis Dawson, Jackson Barry, John Spinale and Shawn Attika, will perform in “Aladdin and His Magic Lamp.”

Gifft Hill School and New England Youth Theater will present “Aladdin and His Magic Lamp” by Uncle Stevie Stearns of NEYT.

Performances, at GHS’ lower campus great room, are on Friday, January 21, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, January 22, at 2 p.m. Tickets are at the door for a suggested donation of $10.

“Aladdin” is a “drop dead funny” melodrama; a “slap stick,” corny joke, wild and witty comedy, with mad chase scenes backed up by a real live rock band led by director Uncle Stevie’s son, Ian Stearns, who is visiting from New York City where he runs Comedy Central Records.

The show’s Rock Band will feature a core of GHS rockers, backed up by Barbie Barry on blues harmonica, Ian on lead guitar and other local St. John adult musicians. “Aladdin and His Magic Lamp” will entertain kids and adults alike. It brings the audience into the act by having them boo and hiss the villain, cheer the heros and sing along with the rock band.

Audiences will laugh, cheer, scream and have the time of their lives at the show. Come and join the GHS students for a joke and laugh-filled performance of pure joy.
