Sinbad the Sailor Family Show

From Thursday 11th December to Saturday 13th December, 7:30pm to 10:00pm

The Moat Players proudly present Sinbad the Sailor this December.

Sinbad arrives in the port of Al Haveanother, boasting of his adventures at sea, and immediately falls for the Sultan’s daughter. Before he can charm her father, however, the evil sorceress Halapena spirits her away to a far-off island! Sinbad is the obvious choice to lead the rescue mission – except he’s actually just a deck-hand, and this voyage might find him a little out of his depth.
