Emerging fresh from the mind of Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw, Disney’s Aladdin comes to the Dr. Phillips Center this week. But the cast is also offering a fresh cabaret spin by presenting “Songs From a Whole New World” for a good cause. By teaming up with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, company members are breathing new life into Broadway hits and original works while generating proceeds that will go toward funding essential services for HIV/AIDS patients. Look forward to a unique musical experience curated by company members themselves.

8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27 | The Abbey, 100 S. Eola Drive | 407-704-6103 | | $10
