Long ago in a far off land a king is to be married to the beautiful Sheherazade. No one is celebrating, for the vengeful and brutal King Sharyar has executed 1000 wives before her. The same fate awaits Sheherazade. Only her gift of storytelling can save her life. Can she melt her tyrant husband’s cold heart with her tales of treasures, monsters, genies, magic and romance and create a true love story of her own? Enter Sheherazade’s world of wondrous adventures for 1,001 Arabian Nights in an exciting musical version specially written for a large flexible cast of mixed ages and abilities.
