The Actors Guild of Parkersburg - The Stories of Scheherazade

category : Other Attractions
February 23 and March 2 at 8:00 p.m., February 24 and March 3 at 2:30 p.m.

“The Stories of Scheherazade”, based on the classic "Tales of the Arabian Nights", is a musical magic carpet ride through the colorful legend of the greatest storyteller of the ancient Arabian world. Scheherazade is called upon to use her tale-spinning talents to save the women in her kingdom from certain destruction by the King. Her tales are underscored by captivating musical themes. Her enchanted stories transform royal counselors into powerful genies and change the King into his own worst enemy, a woman, and a victim of his own revengeful plot. Cast and crew will be comprised of members of Guild Builders, the Actors Guild’s youth theatre troupe.

Each performance will be preceded by a short original play entitled “Arabian Nightmare”, written and produced by the Guild Builders Playwriting & Producing class, and telling the story of a group of college students and professors who survive a plane crash in the desert and stumble onto a significant archaeological find, with a Genie, a mummy, and an ancient curse to overcome.
The Actors Guild is located at 724 Market Street in downtown Parkersburg, with free parking in neighboring lots. Ticket prices are $7.00 for adults and senior citizens and $5.00 for students through college. For more information or reservations call the Box Office at 304-485-1300 or visit the web site at
