A new job listing from the Walt Disney Company indicates that the hit musical will return to the road in fall 2022.
Posted on January 12, 2022, Disney Theatrical Group is seeking applications to fill the positions of Production Stage Manager and Assistant Stage Managers on a new touring production of Aladdin in the fall of 2022.
As reported back in October 2019, DTG had already decided to close the North American tour to reconfigure the show. Initially, the new tour was scheduled to launch in fall 2021, but delays were brought on largely due to the pandemic.
Information concerning engagement dates, venues, and casting for the tour will be announced at a later date.
