Burton Joyce Players to stage Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves later this month

A Burton Joyce theatre company has come up with their perfect tonic to beat the January blues.

The Burton Joyce Players are keeping the festive feeling a little longer by bringing the popular pantomime Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves to the stage later this month.

The group, which stages its productions in the village hall, is staging the much loved children’s story as its annual winter show.

In the story, Ali Baba is a poor woodcutter who discovers the secret of a thieves’ den, entered with the phrase “Open Sesame“.

The thieves learn this and try to kill Ali Baba, but Ali Baba’s faithful slave-girl foils their plots. Ali Baba gives his son to her in marriage and keeps the secret of the treasure.

The play has been written by Julie Petrucci and Chris Shinn
and is being directed by Kathy Matthews.

The show runs from Wednesday, January 23 until Saturday, January 26th with performances taking place at 7.30pm.
