The show did not go on after a malfunction during “Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular” show at the California Adventure theme park Sunday.

A video posted on YouTube shows two performers, playing Aladdin and Jasmine, were left hanging by their harnesses during the 4:45 p.m. show Sunday.

“We regret any inconvenience this may have caused you. Once again this performance cannot continue,” said a show announcer. “Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, we ask that you please exit using the doors on your right.”

Show-goers were first to report the malfunction on Twitter and YouTube. The show was halted and audience members were quickly evacuated as the crew worked to fix the problem, according to reports.

Both performers were harnessed and they were uninjured, said a Disney spokeswoman.

The park resumed all “Aladdin” shows Monday.
