Seark Concert presented 11 Aladdin shows last week to 1,750 kindergarten and first grade students in area schools.

The marionette puppet shows by Stevens Puppets were presented at no cost to students in nine Southeast Arkansas school districts.

Also, Lion King tickets are quickly selling out for the March 9-11 musical. Tickets are available online at
