Katie deBuys, Christopher Wilson, center, and Michael Glenn in Imagination Stage’s 2011 production of Aladdin’s Luck.

Aladdin’s Luck

Janet Stanford, playwright


53 pgs. 9 characters (originally performed with 3 actors) Originally produced by Imagination Stage in 2011           Run Time: 90 minutes Audience Recommendation: All Ages


The clever street urchin Aladdin falls madly for the Princess Leilah when they meet by chance at the bazaar. Determined to impress her, he embarks on a search for fortune and instead finds a dingy oil lamp. But this is no ordinary lamp; it houses a magical genie who helps Aladdin masquerade as a grand emir to win the Princesses’ hand. Leilah, however, fell for the street urchin, not the grand emir. Frustrated that Aladdin won’t admit who he really is, she gives the lamp to an unscrupulous magician and ends up his prisoner. Aladdin must travel across the desert to rescue her by doing the thing that scares him the most…being himself.

“With an interesting, engaging and meaningful plot, Aladdin’s Luck is an absolute joy to watch.”  – MD Theatre Guide

“Aladdin ultimately learns that such enchantments pale when compared with human love and the strength that comes from self-acceptance. It’s a moral as wholesome as any sesame cake.”  –The Washington Post
