About the Show
‘Join me on my incredible voyages, as I tell my amazing story – from my humble beginnings in Baghdad, to sailing the seven seas in search of adventure. Look out for exciting encounters with giant birds, an amorous mermaid, a hungry giant, two dancing camels and a murderous sultan! Can I get home in one piece? Find out at Sydenham Centre from Saturday 7 March!’
Beloved Sydenham theatre company Spontaneous Productions is back with its 12th original theatre show for families. From the same team who brought you Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Pinocchio and The Snow Queen expect a magical story, amazing songs and dance routines, comedy, special effects, animation and lots of audience participation!
The cast includes Paul-D Stephenson – last seen as Tukkuma the Dragonfly in Anansi the Spider and the White Rabbit in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – as Sinbad, Jimand Allotey – previously seen as Anansi in Anansi the Spider, The Blue Fairy in Pinocchio and Gerda in The Snow Queen – as Sinbad the Porter and Marina the Mermaid and Valeria Iacampo – who played Pinocchio in 2019 – as the Princess Yasmeena. Last but not least, we’re delighted that Spontaneous regular Hjalmar Nordén will be making a very special guest appearance on video!
