The LightBox Theatre Company returns for its third season this fall with a familiar story in the adaptation of “Aladdin’s Luck.”

Based on the classic tale “The Arabian Nights,” “Aladdin’s Luck” is the story of a street urchin who falls in love with a princess. Trying to impress the princess, Aladdin embarks on adventures with a magical genie. After the princess was imprisoned by an unscrupulous magician, Aladdin must travel across the desert to rescue her by doing the thing that scares him the most…being himself.

“Aladdin’s Luck,” written by Janet Stanford, touches on topics of love, strength and self-acceptance.

LightBox Theatre Company co-founders Stefani Tsai and Eric Broadwater are directing and designing the production, respectively. As it has been the case for all previous productions, “Aladdin’s Luck” features local actors from the community and recent Stanislaus State graduates.

“LightBox is thrilled to begin our third season this October with this wonderful story of Aladdin,” Tsai said. “This engaging play has a very meaningful plot. The costumes will be very colorful and the multimedia set will be spectacular.”

“Aladdin’s Luck” will run through October 22 at The Loft at Carnegie Arts Center in Downtown Turlock. Show times are 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for Carnegie members; student tickets are $8 with a valid id (3-12). For tickets visit

This production is the first show of the 2017-18 season for LightBox Theatre Company. The troupe will stage “Pinocchio” in March 2018.
