MCMT is excited to present the SA premiere of TWISTED: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier. Originally produced by the geniuses at StarKid Productions, Twisted is an outrageous musical adventure that re-tells the classic story of Aladdin but from the perspective of its traditional villain, Ja’far.

If you’re interested in being a part of this original retelling, we welcome you to read on and audition for the show. Auditions will be held 15th-16th June 2024.

Show Synopsis

Ja’far is a hardworking, honest politician in a magic kingdom that has fallen on hard times. Corruption is rampant on all levels, crime is up (thanks to the efforts of that thief Aladdin!), and the kingdom is on the verge of bankruptcy. When the naive princess angers the prince of the Kingdom of Pik-zahr, Ja’far remembers a tale told to him by his deceased wife of an all-powerful Djinn, hidden in a common lamp. To save the kingdom from certain destruction, Ja’far must do everything he can to get his hands on that lamp, even when the road gets a little twisted, to ensure a happy ending for all.

Please endeavour to arrive at least 10 minutes early so that you have enough time to find a car park and then sign in with MCMT’s Front of House, so that your timeslot can commence on time.
