The musical is directed by Ehab Nasser, with a script written by Abdelrahman Samir, and is a take on the familiar Arabian tale of Aladdin.
Actor Taha Khalifa will be performing the title role of Aladdin, co-staring with Reem Ahmed, who will play Jasmine.
Rehearsals and preparation for the musical performances and dance routines have taken two months.
