Twenty students in Fort Plain Jr./Sr. High School’s OK2XL program visited Proctor’s Theatre in Schenectady on Oct. 19 to see the Broadway musical “Disney’s Aladdin,” a trip made possible through the Arts in Education program.

The production was a hit with the students. “I was highly impressed by the beauty of the set and the costumes,” Taylor Potter said. “The cast was very talented and perfect for their characters. I recommend it to anyone to see ‘Aladdin’.”

“As for my experience at Proctor’s ‘Aladdin’, it was the most magical performance I had seen at the theatre,” Natalie Thibodeau said. “I had a wonderful time with my friends while seeing the play, and it was a school trip experience that was unforgettable.”
