Tech week begins today for Aladdin and his Magic Lamp!
What is tech week?! That's when all the our hard work begins to really come to life. Stage lights are hung and focused, the crew loads in the set, last-minute costume embellishments are added, dressing rooms are labeled, and the choreography is placed on the big stage at The Academy of Music.
