Theater Works Presents 
The Tales From The Arabian Nights

Peoria, Arizona (August 24, 2014)) Theater Works at Peoria Center for the Performing Arts announces the opening of its first YouthWorks production of the season.  The Tales From The Arabian Nights opens on September 12 and runs through September 28, 2014.

The Tales From The Arabian Nights is a delightfully humorous production that retells a selection of action-packed tales from The Thousand and One Nights.  


More than a millennium ago… a sultan, bewitched by a magic sword, decrees that he will marry a new bride every evening and chop off her head the next morning.  To save her neck, the clever Scheherazade begins telling her husband a tale each night that is never quite completed by the morning – thus postponing her execution.  Scheherazade keeps up the stories for 1001 nights, finally freeing her husband from the evil spell
