The sheer volume of talent came out for the Aladdin auditions and Director Tony Cusack felt the pressure this year when it came to casting.

"If I could, I would cast everybody, but then we would have a 4hour show. We tried that didn't work"

"It took a lot of time but we have an amazing line-up for the Aladdin that will knock your socks off".
