U.S. Premiere!March 19 - April 16, 2011
"Goóbecause your kid will get a kick out of the special effects, the sword-fighting action, the slapstick comedy, and the exotic storyline. But all those (significant) aspects aside, go to let your kid escape the ordinary; let them get transported into a quirky, slightly dangerous and completely magical place, if just for a little while. It's a trip worth taking." Time Out Chicago Kids
"Filled with magical moments, thrilling combat and awe-inspiring special effects" - Centerstage Chicago
"Sprightly performances from Edgar Sanchez as the plucky porter, Dana Dajani as defiant Ittifaq, and Esteban Cruz as a sassy genie (can there be any other kind?) create a mostly enjoyable ramble." The Chicago Reader
Show DescriptionIttifaq, the pampered daughter of famed sailor Sinbad of the Seven Seas, bristles under her fatherís overprotective care and longs for an adventure of her own. Young Sinbad, an orphaned porter, lives on the streets and relies on his clever wit to survive. The two meet by chance just before a bitter sorceress casts a poison cloud over the city of Baghdad. The unlikely duo soon find themselves facing good and evil genies, daring swordfights, magic boats and flying carpets. But can Sinbad and Ittifaq defeat the sorceress in time, or will their beloved city be destroyed forever?Recommended for ages 9 and up (4th thru 8th grades).
