Students dazzle in 'Aladdin Jr.,' three shows this weekend

    The Community Youth Players and ACT 2 Players brought a beloved Disney classic to life with the performance of Aladdin Jr. at the Valleytown Cultural Art Center in downtown Andrews last weekend.
    Directed by Lori Coffey, the musical paraded a 33-person cast, vibrant costumes, energetic songs and dances, and self-aware comedy.
    “I liked all of it,” 6-year-old Booker Bailey said. “Genie (played by Blake Williams) was really funny.”
    Preparations for the play started at the beginning of February. Eddie Hoilman created the set, Judi Bryson Postell and Dawna Burnett Bryson produced the backdrop artwork, while Leah Wood designed and handmade most of the costumes.

    For those who missed last weekend’s play, the performance will crank up again at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, plus a 3 p.m. Sunday matinée.
