Not the Arts Center production, but flopped up here for the LOLworthiness.
‘ALADDIN AND THE WONDERFUL LAMP' 7 p.m., Children's Theatre, Arkansas Arts Center. $11-$14.
After five productions since September, the Arkansas Arts Center's
Children's Theatre is winding down its 2009-2010 season with one of the most well-known folk tales ever in “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp.”
Ever since Robin Williams hijacked everyone's perception of the story years ago, it's been difficult to separate his lampooning from the centuries-old story of the beggar, the sorcerer, the girl and the genie that's so familiar there's really little use in retreading it for anyone who's old enough to read this article. That said, if you have a tater tot running around your house, oblivious to the magic and action in “Aladdin,” it's high time to provide an introduction. The play continues through May 16, with performances at 7 p.m. Friday, 3 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
