Experience an evening of love, adventure, eroticism and bawdry as Scheherazade fights to stay alive and restore balance. After marrying a king whose ritual is to kill his new bride after each wedding night, she puts off her death by telling him tales that have been gathered from throughout the Arabian Empire. Arabian Nights is a celebration of the richness of traditional Middle Eastern culture, but even more a celebration of life and the human experience.
Admission is $5 for WSCU students with ID and $10 for general admission. Tickets are available at the WSCU Bookstore or one half-hour before the performance in the Studio Theatre lobby.
