Ali Baba & The Forty Thieves



Ali Baba stumbles across untold wealth in a secret cave when he learns the magic words “Open Sesame”. He is poor no longer. But when the Robber King finds some of his treasure is missing, he and his forty companions plan their revenge on whoever has taken it.

Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves is an exciting, hilarious, swashbuckling adventure from the Arabian Nights, with no less than thirty-nine villains and one robber king! It also explores some essential issues and carries an important message: after all, everyone wants to win the lottery, but as Ali Baba learns money certainly isn’t everything!!!

Wizard Theatre returns with the exciting adventure Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves, in association with international award-winning theatre company Illyria.

Packed full of drama, live music & fun, it's the most fun you'll ever have counting to 40!

Producing high-quality theatre-in-education that engages staff and students is of paramount importance – this mission drives us forward. The cherry on the cake is that when we do such a great job, we receive multiple reviews testifying to that statement.

Every project delivers a different experience to those involved so it rewarding to hear first-hand what our audience took away with them. For some, our projects can be reflective and thought-provoking, for others they can install confidence and ignite passion. Please take a moment to read some reviews from past and present Wizard Theatre clients.   

Fantastic performance from the group and excellent workshop with real depth and educating questions throughout. It is such an amazing factual piece that just makes you stop and listen.

I thoroughly recommend this 6 week course. The targeted children began fairly quietly and the aim was to develop their self- confidence through speaking and listening skills and activities. This was certainly achieved and the outcomes were excellent. I was amazed by their end of course presentations and their progress has been carried into the classroom and other areas of school life. We have seen a real improvement in their confidence and achievements. All of our work with 'Wizard Theatre' is of a high quality and I am always very impressed by the tutors/actors that they provide.

Excellent as always! A session that always challenges some of the preconceptions Year 6 pupils have!
