Illyria – Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves

Tuesday 13 August, 7pm

Young Ali Baba stumbles across an enchanted cave, where he finds untold amounts of gold and jewels, and takes some of it home to show his wife.  But what will he do when she chides him for stealing?  Can he keep the secret from his jealous brother?  And when the Robber King comes looking for the missing treasure supported by an army of 40 angry thieves, will he and his family survive?

Packed with cliff-hangers, larger-than-life characters and laughs galore – perfect summer fun for thieves and vagabonds 5yrs and over!
