Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves tells the story of Ali who is a lazy young man, who would like to make his fortune doing nothing. He is nagged by his mother and loved by their servant, but he has fallen in love with a visiting princess.
He discovers a plot to rob the Princess’ father, the Sultan, and sets out to impress by catching the thieves and therefore winning the favour of the Princess.
His efforts are rewarded with help of a servant girl, a genie and the people of the Lost City of Ooh, but are thwarted by the thieves and the greed and foolishness of his mother.
Eventually he wins the day, but there are lots of twists and turns along the way and you will have to see for yourselves how our story ends.
Come along and meet Ali and his friends, plus Jabber, Lofty, Toot, Carmen and all the thieves, and Fayha the camel.
