Ali Baba and the Arabian Nights

Age Level: Teens to Adults
Cast: 8F, 5M, 8M or F
Time: 90 minutes, 2 acts

"Open, Sesame!" We all remember these magic words that open the treasure-laden Cave of Death. The townsfolk consider Ali Baba to be not very bright. He wants to marry beautiful Jasmine, but her mother and aunt want her to marry Abdullah, the selfish, wealthy undertaker, instead. Ali Baba hides when he sees thieves approach the cave to hide their money, and he hears the magic words. When the thieves leave, he enters the cave to take three bags of gold to win the hand of Jasmine. The thieves soon discover that some of their money has been stolen. To get it back they hide in huge jars to rob the village after dark. Ali and Jasmine learn about this and foil their plan by pouring handfuls of ants into the jars. The thieves depart screaming and Jasmine’s mother and aunt change their opinion of Ali Baba and he gets to marry Jasmine.
