ALADDIN: SCRIPT ADAPTATION

Scene 1

(Jafar enters the stage and approach Sultan at the centre of the stage)

JAFAR: Your Majesty, I found the solution for your daughter’s problem.

SULTAN: What do you mean ? (sing)

JAFAR: (Unrolling a scroll) Right here. "If the princess

fail to find a husband by the appointed time,

then the sultan shall choose for her."

SULTAN: But Jasmine hated this!

JAFAR: There is more. If, in the

event a suitable prince cannot be found, a princess

must then be wed to...hmm...interesting.

SULTAN: What? Who?

JAFAR: The royal vizier! Ha ha ha. That would be...me!(He laugh like a crazy evil man)

SULTAN: Why, my princess will only marry a prince !

JAFAR: We are desperate now!

(He pulls out the staff and hypnotizes the Sultan with it.)

SULTAN: Yes...desperate ……

JAFAR: The princess will marry me.

SULTAN: I...will order...the princess...to...(the spell breaks momentarily)...but you're so old!

JAFAR: (Holds the staff closer) The princess will marry me!

SULTAN: The princess will marry...(the spell is again broken, this time by the trumpet fanfare

of "Prince Ali".) What? What is that? That music! Ha ha ha. Jafar., you must come

and see this.

ALADDIN: (Takes on a deeper voice.) Ahem. Your majesty, I have journeyed from afar to

ask for your daughter's hand.

SULTAN: Prince Ali Ababwa! Of course. I'm delighted to meet you. (He rushes over and

shakes ALI's hand.) This is my royal vizier, Jafar. He's delighted too.

JAFAR: Whatever. (He makes annoying face)

(JASMINE walks in quietly.)

SULTAN: Jasmine will like you!

ALADDIN: And I'm pretty sure I'll like Princess Jasmine!

JAFAR: Your highness, no. I must say no in Jasmine’s behalf .He has nothing special and

not qualify to be the Prince !

ALADDIN: Your majesty, I am Prince Ali Ababwa! I will win your daughter!

JASMINE: How dare you! All of you, standing around deciding my future? Who do you think

you are ! (She storms out.)

SULTAN: Don't worry, Prince Ali. Just give Jasmine time to cool down.

(They exit.)

(Aladdin and Genie enter the stage while looking at Jasmine which is standing at her room’s

balcony. They talk to each other at the right corner of the stage)

ALADDIN: What am I going to do? Jasmine wont talk to me. Genie, I need help.

GENIE: Don’t worry little boy! I have marvelous idea for you.

ALADDIN: What ?

GENIE: (He points out his words on a blackboard) Tell her the...TRUTH!!!

ALADDIN: No way! If Jasmine found out I was a street rat, she'd laugh at me.

GENIE: A woman appreciates a man who can make her laugh! You know someone like me

hahahaha. Ahem okay just joking, you really ought to be yourself.

ALADDIN: Whatever. I'm gonna go see her now. How do I look?

GENIE: (Sadly) Like a prince.

(ALADDIN flies up to the balcony on CARPET. JASMINE is on her bed,sighing. )

ALADDIN: Good kitty, take off. Down kitty.

JASMINE: Wait, wait. Do I know you?

ALADDIN: (Quickly replaces his turban) Uh, no, no.

JASMINE: You remind me of someone I met in the marketplace.

ALADDIN: The marketplace?

JASMINE: No, I guess not.

ALADDIN: Um, Princess Jasmine? You're very...

ALADDIN: Beautiful. (youre beautiful song)

JASMINE: Hmm. I'm rich too, you know. A fine prize for any prince to marry.

ALADDIN: Uh, right. Right. A prince like me. You aren't just some prize to be won. (He

looks disappointed.) You should be free to make your own choice. I'll go now.

(He steps up on the ledge and drops off.)

JASMINE: No!

ALADDIN: (Pokes his head up from over the edge) What? What?

JASMINE: How--how are you doing that?

(She looks over the edge and sees the CARPET.)

ALADDIN: It's a magic carpet.

JASMINE: It's lovely. (CARPET takes JASMINE's hand with a tassel.)

ALADDIN: Do you wanna have a ride?

JASMINE: Is it safe?

ALADDIN: Sure. Trust me. (Extends his hand the same as before) Do you trust me?

(She takes his hand and gets up on CARPET.The music of "A Whole New World" swells.)

JASMINE: (She pulls off his turban) You are the boy from the market! I knew it. Why did

you lie to me?

ALADDIN: I'm sorry.

JASMINE: Did you think I was stupid? Who are you? Tell me the truth!

ALADDIN: The truth? The truth is...I sometimes dress as a commoner to escape the

pressures of palace life.

JASMINE: Why didn't you just tell me?

ALADDIN: Well, Im afraid that you will hate me.

JASMINE: I wont hate you! ( She smiles at Aladdin) Its getting late I need to go. Good night,

my handsome prince.

ALADDIN: Sleep well, princess. (He waves at Jasmine)

ALADDIN: Tell them the truth, Jafar! You tried to kill me!

to the SULTAN's face.)
