Arabian Nights’s current featured production, The American Princess, is a lighthearted tale of adventure and romance.
On her 21st birthday, an all-American girl and champion rider discovers that she is actually the Princess Scheherazade. Along with her genie Abracadabra, Princess Scheherazade takes the audience on a magical journey around the world to find her prince – who must love horses as much as she does.
You’ll join the princess as Abracadabra takes her to Europe to see the famous military-style quadrilles; to Latin America to see the romance of the garrocha; to a Gypsy camp to see unbelievable acrobatics on horseback; to the world of Imagination to see that beauty of the magical, mystical unicorn; and back to the U.S.A. where four fabulous acts honor America!
Along the way, Abracadabra must protect Princess Scheherazade from the evil Prince Vaneer, who has been waiting for years to make Princess Scheherazade his unwilling bride. When Abracadabra accidentally summons him, Prince Vaneer puts his plan to kidnap the princess and claim her throne into action.
Meanwhile, Prince Khalid seems like everything Scheherazade could desire – kind, gentle, and a true horseman, the two seem destined to live happily ever after. But will Prince Vaneer’s evil plan get in the way? Or will the magic of true love save the day?
The American Princess runs approximately 90 minutes with no intermission, and will delight audiences of all ages.
