Hi David,

This is an event for progressive families. It's a re-telling of Aladdin with a very "green" twist to it. I hope you can include it in your April calendar.

Thank you so much,


Premiere of: ALA DEAN AND THE MARVELOUS LAMP, an original play integrating live music, color shadow puppetry and digital video animation. This version of the beloved folktale "Aladdin" features plucky heroine Ala Dean, who battles against an evil sorcerer and a war-mongering Supreme Ruler. During her adventures, she discovers a genii in a magic lamp – but quickly learns that even a mountain of riches does not bring happiness when others are suffering around her. Audiences of all ages will appreciate the feisty “shero” Ala Dean and the story’s message of peace. Public Performances:  Friday, April 14, 8pm, Saturday, April 15, 2pm and 8pm. All shows are at the Center for Independent Artists (CI4A), 4137 Bloomington Ave Minneapolis MN 55407. Tickets: (612) 724-8392, or
