Albany-- Area middle schoolers took in a special presentation of Aladdin today at the Albany Municipal Auditorium. It was not the popular disney version of Aladdin at all, but a ballet performed by dancers from Ballet Theatre South.

About three-thousand students enjoyed the performances, that featured several fight scenes, and a much different overall story line that "I think the kids are going to love, especially little boys, because there is a battle scene, there is a gennie and there is a lot of action so I think its really fun for everyone, but I think boys will enjoy it more than an ordinary ballet"said  ballet director Leslie Hodges.

The ballet performance of Aladdin will be open to the public at the Albany Municipal Auditorium Friday, and Saturday night at 7:30, and Sunday afternoon at 2:30. Tickets can be purchased at the Auditorium box office, or the Albany Civic Center. director Leslie Hodges says is a real crowd pleaser.
