A panto of one of the most exciting Arabian Nights stories. The plot is full of suspense, excitement, humour and song with the villains finally getting their comeuppance.
Ali Baba lives with his mother and their servant, Salma, on the Saanich Peninsula, long ago before his tribe moved to the Middle East. Life was pretty uneventful until a group of former pirates arrived in town and began to steal from the citizens. Amongst other items, the thieves have stolen the Sultan’s sceptre, his mark of office, and Ali, who has fallen in love with the Sultan’s daughter, determines to impress him (and her) by stealing it back. The trouble is that he has no idea how to do that.
With the help of Salma, a genie, a hard-working camel and (we hope) the audience, and despite his mother getting in the way, we hope that Ali will succeed in his quest. However, the thieves have a few tricks up their sleeves and an ally in high paces so you won’t know whether or how Ali will manage it unless you come to see the show!
