The Stories of Scheherazade
A musical Arabian Nights tale
The "Wordspinner" and the rhythmic beat of the tom-toms open and close this charming musical adventure for all age groups. Pocahontas is the daughter of the mighty Algonquin Chief Powhatan. The princess delights in playing with Raven, Wolf and Squirrel. Pocahontas has also made friends with the English settlers of Jamestown, a community struggling with starvation and sickness. This enchanting musical is graced with a wonderful cast of characters: Little Running Rabbit, Brave Eagle, Aunt Morning Star, Forest Spirits, Mother Earth and, of course, the people of Jamestown. Filled with Native American lore and beautiful music, this play is true to the original legend. Audiences will be swept away with DeTurkís original music, featuring such songs as "Live Forever," "No Common Ground" and the beautiful "Your Heart Always Knows." (Also available as a non-musical.) Different Arabian nights adaptations are available: Aladdin and his Wonderful, Magical Lamp Aladdin Abracadabra, Aladdin!
