Stirling University Musical Theatre Society - Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier

Sat 11 - Sun 12 Apr 2020

What if Aladdin was told from the baddies' perspective?

Tickets £10 / £7.50 Conc

There are two sides to every story. We all know the story of how a plucky and brave young thief befriends a magical genie, wins the heart of a beautiful Princess, and puts a stop to the plans of a truly evil Royal vizier.

But what if the tale everyone knows, and loves had a twist; especially from the perspective of one such Royal vizier… Is Ja’far truly evil, or do his efforts for good go unnoticed by an incompetent Sultan? Is Aladdin really the innocent and brave individual everyone believes? What of the socio-economic inequality that lead him to thievery in the first place? Is the Princess truly ready to run a kingdom? And just what did happen between Achmed and that tiger?

Originally produced by Starkid Productions; ‘Twisted: the Untold Story of a Royal Vizier’ will answer all of these questions… and more, in a simultaneously scathing parody and heartfelt musical tribute to everyone’s favourite animated films of the 90’s.
