'Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves!' - Illyria presents:

'Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves!'

Date: Sunday 28th July 2019
Time: 19:30

Illyria presents: 'Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves!'


Adapted by Oliver Gray.
Young Ali Baba stumbles across an enchanted cave when he overhears the magic words that open it: “Open Sesame!”

Inside the cave, he finds untold amounts of gold and jewels, and takes some of it home to show his wife.

But what will he do when she chides him for stealing?

Can he keep the secret from his jealous brother?

And when the Robber King comes looking for the missing treasure supported by an army of 40 angry thieves –will he and his family survive?

The show is notable for a scene where one character polishes off most of the thieves –37 to be precise, and you can count each one – a cast of just five of the most hardworking actors in the business!

Illyria was the first company to tour children’s theatre on this scale in the open-air touring sector.

Following their enormous successes with The Adventures Of Doctor Dolittle, The Emperor's New Clothes, Danny The Champion Of The World, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, George's Marvellous Medicine, Babe The Sheep-Pig and The Twits, they are also regarded as the best.

Now in their 28th season, last performed in 2003, Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves! is adapted from the One Thousand and One Nights (otherwise known as The Arabian Nights).

Like all the stories in this towering literary classic, it is packed with cliff-hangers,larger-than-life characters, and laughs galore.

There’s lots and lots to join in with – and the most magical cave you’ve ever seen!

Perfect summer fun for all thieves and vagabonds aged 5+.
