Constellation Theatre Company first caught the attention of the DC theatre scene with its production of The Arabian Nights. 10 years later, the company is delighted to welcome Scheherazade and her 1,001 tales back to Source. Comic stories like “The Jester’s Wife” alternate with mysterious dreams and moving stories of love and sacrifice. The Arabian Nights is a testament to the power of storytelling to transform people, illuminate their minds and redeem their souls.

Run Time: 2:20
plus one intermission

recommended for ages 16 & up

Frequently Asked Preview Performance Questions:
1.) What is a Preview Performance? A preview performance is an opportunity for the cast and crew to fine tune the show based on the response of a live audience. Sometimes there will be changes made prior to opening night, but it is a full performance with all theatrical elements in place.
2.) Can I buy a ticket online/over the phone/in advance? Nope! All tickets will be sold at the door.
3.) How can I ensure myself a seat? We can't make any guarantees, but we recommend that patrons arrive at the theater as early as they can to grab a spot in line. Our box office will start selling tickets 1 hour before each performance, but we can't take any reservations before then.
4.) So I can really pay whatever I want? Yes! We don't give out free tickets, but we accept cash, checks, and credit cards for payment. Our suggested price is $10 per ticket - a truly incredible deal!
