“Aladdin” in the Eldorado Showroom Closes January 13

Final Chance to See Stunning Live Action 3D Megavision Technology

Appearing now in the Eldorado showroom, “Aladdin” has been amazing audiences of all ages. The classic storybook tale comes to life on stage with an incredible cast of singers, actors, dancers, martial artists and a magician plus astonishing 3D technology.

A cast of live actors tell the tale of the poor city boy who finds a magic lamp, defeats the evil wizard Abanazar and marries his beloved princess Jasmine all with the help of a genie. Utilizing the innovative new stage effect of Live Action 3D Megavison, the character of the genie is a 3D cartoon that interacts live on stage with the actors and with the audience. Additionally, the 3D technology is used for scenery and other effects making the production a breathtaking rollercoaster of a ride.

UK based creator, Jon Conway was inspired to bring the technique to the stage after his son, who had seen all the 3D movies, asked why stage shows couldn’t be as exciting. “Simple as that I thought, why not?” recalls Conway. “So working with a British special effects house I created this big red funny genie who actually talks to the real life actors. Then I applied that same technique to the scenery and other elements so the audience will really be immersed in this other world. We travel through China and deserts in amazing depth and perspective. It really is a thrilling experience.”

The 3D technology used in the show will also play a clinical role in treatments for hospitalized children at Renown Health. This technology has been adapted for use as a specialized 3D Distraction Station for pediatric patients undergoing medical procedures. The Aladdin production team and the Eldorado teamed up to donate one of these units, which costs $15,000, to Renown and are raising money for a second unit through donations collected at the end of each show. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals will designate a portion of this year’s campaign to match proceeds raised.
