Question: Why did you try out for Disney's Aladdin Jr.? Had you seen the movie before?
Aaron Walker: I auditioned because it's Aladdin. I have yet to see the movie. I've had several opportunities, but I've seen only snippets from the Broadway show and the movie.
Question: What will an audience love about this show?
A.W.: "Friend Like Me" and "Prince Ali" are the most iconic songs from the show.
Question: If you could trade roles with anyone, who would it be and why?
A.W.: Erin Locke, who plays Jasmine. I've always wanted to play a drag role.
Question: Imagine you come across a pile of junk and on top is an old, beaten-up lamp. What do you do?
A.W.: I'd take the lamp and sell it after I wasted the wishes.
