The Commedia Voyages of Sinbad

Ahoy there ye mateys… prepare yourself to sail the seven seas with Sinbad the Sailor! The City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs is inaugurating the Thomas Center Theatre for Young Audiences. The first production will be “The Commedia Voyages of Sinbad" by celebrated young audiences’ playwright Lane Riosley. It will take place outdoors at the Thomas Center’s Grace and Sidney Knight Garden Theatre.

The play is a creative version of Sinbad’s seven voyages with tumbling, mock combat, puppetry, masks and clowning that the players will use to bring to life a giant fish, the monstrous roc bird, the King of the Skeletons, Zughub the Ogre, the Old Man of the Sea, the Elephant King and more! Opening on Thursday, April 15, the play will run on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 11 a.m. through Saturday, May 15. This free event is recommended for all ages, ideally suited for families to enjoy together!
