THE TALES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS, Theater Works, September 12 - 28, 2014

Talented and well-trained young performers, ages 12 to 19, star in Tales From the Arabian Nights, based on the beloved collection of ancient and timeless stories. Desperate to stave off her own execution, the beautiful young maiden known as Scheherazade spins tale after tale for her new husband, the king, who's trapped under an evil charm. Each night, she spellbinds him with the famed stories of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, Sinbad the Sailor and Aladdin's magic lamp, hoping that her vivid imagination will buy her the time she needs to break the spell and win her own freedom. Generations have been swept up in the excitement and romance of this classic, first published in English around the early 1700s.
