About The Arabian Nights
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The Arabian Nights
Join us as we share stories of the miraculous and magnificent, featuring the familiar faces of Aladdin, Sinbad and Ali Baba, along with mysterious genies, magic carpets, talking birds, and a whole host of heroes and villains, brought to life on our stage this Christmas.
The market square of old Baghdad is a place of wonders. Treasures from all over the world find their way to the ancient city, as do the people. Charming pickpockets and penniless writers, carpet makers, coffee vendors, and fortune tellers all vie for business in this cosmopolitan whirl.
In the middle of it all we find a young girl with a big imagination – a girl called Scheherezade. She spends her days weaving stories from the world and characters around her...much to the annoyance of her father, an antique dealer who wishes his dreamy daughter would help out once in a while!
But when the wicked Sultan announces a terrible plan that threatens the very essence of this wondrous world, it might just be Scheherezade’s imagination that saves the day...if only she can catch the Sultan in her web of stories!
Rich with suspense, enchantment, romance, and hilarity, the ancient tales of The Arabian Nights are irresistible for all ages, and a great opportunity to bring families together, transporting them to the glittering heat of a faraway magical and musical world, this Christmas.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Arabian Nights are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
