WILMINGTON — The Thalian Hall Pied Piper Theater production of “Aladdin” takes the stage on Jan. 28 at 3 p.m.

The upbeat original musical comedy by Steve Cooper is loosely based on one of the well-known “Tales of the Arabian Nights.”

The musical introduces the street urchin named Aladdin, who discovers a lamp in the magical cave of wonders. When Aladdin rubs the lamp, a genie appears and offers him three wishes. Aladdin’s ultimate wish is to be a prince so he can marry a princess.

Pied Piper Theater’s “Aladdin,” directed by Judy Greenhut, features some of Wilmington’s most talented actors, and includes a musical score that includes some sing-along songs.

Tickets for the public performance can be bought at the Thalian Hall box office at 310 Chestnut St. in Wilmington, by phone at 910-632-2285 or online at
