Arabian Nights

Introduction | Reviews | Tour dates

Meet Sheherazade, the greatest storyteller of them all. She has a feast of adventures and fantasies to tell involving genies, villains, heroes and princesses. But she must keep her husband the king entertained with her stories to save her own life and the lives of all the maidens of the land. Will Ali Baba's encounter with the 40 thieves do the trick? Can the story of Aladdin and his lamp help her live to tell more tales such as the Little Beggar or the Fisherman and the Genie? Find out in Story Pocket Theatre's brand new version of Arabian Nights, a show full of adventure and magic and wonder!

Here is what our audience thought of the show

'BRILLIANT!! My three grandchildren 8, 7 and 4 years were totally entranced (and us grandparents). The very best show (by far) that we have taken them to. All three actors are obviously extremely talented. Long may they continue!!!'

'Spectacular - we go to kids theatre at least once a month. This was spellbinding, captivating and magical. Props, role change over and characterisations all spectacular.'

'What an entertaining show! Fantastic acting!! Kept my 5 year old completely engrossed to the end! One of the best shows we have seen at the Mill studio! We look forward to The Nutcracker.'
