Sinbad the porter loses his money to a conman and is forced to leave Basrah with two friends also down on their luck. They set sail with the short-sighted Captain Acmash, and soon find themselves stranded on a mysterious island, battling ogres, outwitting giant serpents and saving princesses. A light and lively adaptation, loosely based on the classic from the Arabian Nights. Lots of fun with great characters and original songs. (Variable cast. Originally done with cast of 5, but can use up to 15.)
