Wizard Theatre in association with international award-winning open-air theatre company Illyria bring the exciting adventure ‘Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves’ to The Cockpit.
Ali Baba stumbles across untold wealth in a secret cave when he learns the magic words “Open Sesame”. He is poor no longer. But when the Robber King finds some of his treasure is missing, he and his forty companions plan their revenge on whoever has taken it.
Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves is an exciting, hilarious, swashbuckling adventure from the Arabian Nights, with no less than thirty nine villains and one robber king! It also explores some essential issues and carries an important message: after all, everyone wants to win the lottery, but as Ali Baba learns money certainly isn’t everything!!!
Wizard Theatre has been performing plays and workshops for children and young people since 2002. Illyria has performed more plays to more people across a wider area than any other UK open-air touring company. Now in it’s 22nd year!
