Tales from a Thousand and One Nights

  • Show Information
  • Company

Scheherazade tells stories… exhilarating stories full of fun, danger, wonder and passion… but will it be enough… Can her stories save her life?

With their stylish brand of ensemble storytelling, puppetry, mask and live music, Dragonboy Productions breathe new life into some of the funniest and most entertaining folk tales found in The Arabian Nights, including The Seven Voyages of Sindbad, The Little Hunchback, Faisal and the Barber, Behind the Door, and Sage Duban and the Wazir.

Newly adapted and directed by Eliot Giuralarocca, this is a feast of storytelling, suitable for the whole family and woven into a production that simply cannot be missed!


Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Thursday’s performance of Tales from a Thousand and One Nights has been cancelled.
