Foothills Performing Arts & Civic Center welcomes you to audition for their 2024 theatrical season opener, Twisted:The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier, directed by Allie Tabor-Church! 

Twisted is a musical parody that retells the classic tale of Aladdin from the villain’s point of view! Long ago in a Magic Kingdom, one misunderstood Royal Vizier will go on a quest to save his city from its bumbling sultan, an invading prince, and the most notorious thief to ever live. This is an adult, satirical retelling of your favorite hand drawn animated films. 

Twisted originally appeared on Youtube, and was produced by Starkid Productions. You can watch the full musical here: Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier (Whole Show) (
