Set in exotic lands against a colorful story book backdrop, An Arabian Adventure is a thrilling, swashbuckling tale filled with daring escapes, magic, and few surprises along the way. Our story tells the tale of a Persian prince who is thrown into a dungeon because of his love for a beautiful princess. Facing danger at every turn, the courageous prince must use his wits to escape his prison, defeat the diabolical Vizier, and save the princess from a tragic fate. Replete with clever stage illusions and lighting effects, An Arabian Adventure is a fast-paced, action-packed drama with hand-crafted marionettes, brought to life as the dramatic events unfold. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
