Beginning Friday, March 27, Joe Jefferson Players will present the musical version of "Aida" with music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice. The play will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through April 12 at the Playhouse, 11 S. Carlen Street in Mobile. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Aida is the story of forbidden love between the Egyptian leader and the beautiful Ethiopian princess, Aida. She is captured and forced to be a slave to the Pharoah's daughter. When the Ethiopian enemies, headed by Aida's father, invade Egypt, Aida is faced with a dilemma of whom she should support--her father or her beloved Radames. Pictured in a photo provided by Jason McKenzie, Vice President of Marketing for JJP, are Terri Jackson as Aida and James McKinney as Radames.
Tickets for the play are $20 each; seniors and military personnel admission is $15 and student tickets are $10. For information, call 471-1534 or see www.joejeffersonplayers.com.
