Arabian Nights

"Forget the pantomime – this is the family show to see in Manchester this Christmas" The Stage

Long, long ago in a faraway land there lived a clever young girl called Shahrazad. And there was nothing she liked better than to read stories.

Longing to free her town and its vengeful king from the dark demons that haunt them, Shahrazad brings to life the magical stories of One Thousand and One Nights. Her strange and wonderful tales take us to enchanted caves, to meet secret sorceresses, singing trees, flying men and wise talking birds. But can the power of the stories break the terrible curse?

Adapted from the world famous folk tales, Dominic Cooke’s Arabian Nights is a richly imaginative, enthralling and funny delight for Christmas that will keep both children and adults spellbound.

Arabian Nights is performed in the round. NB latecomers will not be able to go through to their seats until after the interval.

Family tickets are available £49 - £54 (4 tickets)

Schools performances just £9 per student. Call for more details on 0843 208 6002.
