We are very proud of graduate Ricardo Spriggs who will be appearing in the original cast of Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ in the West End next year. Ricardo has been working professionally in the industry since graduating in 2012 and recently guest teaching at the college.
The musical features several of the original songs including “Prince Ali”, “Friend Like Me” and Rice’s and Menken’s hit song “A Whole New World” which won the Academy Award for best original song.
President and producer of Disney Theatrical Productions Thomas Schumacher commented: “As we cast this exceptional company, I was impressed… by the vast, deep pool of musical theatre talent in London and throughout Britain and how gratifying that talent is a microcosm of the country in all its diversity and distinction. I’m so proud this beautiful cast reflects that.”
Aladdin will open at the Prince Edward Theatre on Wednesday 15 June 2016, with previews from Friday 27 May.
