Fifth-grade students from all three elementary schools will perform Disney’s Aladdin, Jr. at the South Pasadena High School Auditorium on Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
General Admission tickets are $10 and available for purchase during drop off and pick up times at all three elementary schools, Marengo, Arroyo Vista and Monterey Hills and the SPEF office; 1020 El Centro Street #3, South Pasadena.
The annual Fifth Grade Musical production is a South Pasadena tradition that brings together students for one big, entertaining event. The productions are self-sustaining with all staff and expenses covered by ticket sales and student tuition for the afterschool drama program. It is made possible thanks to parent volunteers who handle everything from supervising rehearsals and designing posters, to applying make-up and planning the cast party.
This year’s production of Aladdin, Jr. will follow in the tradition of showcasing the many key elements of collaboration between SPEF and the SPUSD, including afterschool enrichment, hometown volunteerism, and a commitment to the arts.
