Over 2 years in the works, Lincoln Hall finally performed Aladdin Jr., the musical. Aladdin Jr. was originally selected and casted in 2020 before COVID-19 shut down the production. Cast and crew had been rehearsing for nearly 6 weeks before the shutdown.
Students finally had the opportunity to perform the musical in three sold-out shows. Opening night was on the evening of Friday, May 20, 2022 and also two more performances on Saturday, May 21, 2022.
Cast included sixth grade student William Pearson Strain as Aladdin, eighth grade student Sarah Kadunic as Jasmine, eighth grade student Evan Maxwell as Jafar, sixth grade student Peter Thomson as Iago, and seventh grade student Natalie Logan as Genie.
This was the first musical for Lincolnwood School District 74 since 2019.
