This February, the Buildwas Players perform their 10th
anniversary panto – and this time they’re heading to
Old Baghdad! Meet Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves in this
retelling of one of the best loved tales of the Arabian
Nights. Will Ali manage to outwit the evil Morgiana? And
will he realise that his camel is not what it seems?
Ali Baba and his elder brother Cassim are the sons of
a merchant. Ali marries a poor woman and settles into
the trade of a woodcutter. One day while he is at work
collecting and cutting firewood in the forest, he happens
to overhear a group of 40 thieves visiting their stored
treasure… what will happen in the end?
This year the players are raising funds for Telford First
Responders and the Leighton Church Organ Restoration
Fund. See the show at Buildwas Village Hall from Thursday
6 to Saturday 8 February. Tickets from £4; available to buy
online at alibabapanto.eventbrite.co.uk.
