Part Broadway musical, part dance spectacular and part rock concert AIDA is an epic tale about the power and timelesness of love.  The show features over twenty roles for singers, dancers and actors.  Adapted from the four-time Tony Award-winning hit, Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida School Edition is an epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal, chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier that they both love.  An enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, finds her heart entangled with Radames, an Egyptian soldier who is betrothed to the Pharaoh's daughter, Amneris. As their forbidden love blossoms, Aida is forced to weigh her heart against the responsibility that she faces as the leader of her people. Aida and Radames' love for one another becomes a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
