Overtime Theatre San AntonioCome audition for the Overtime Theater's 2012 Musical! August 19 & 20 7-11 pm at the Overtime, 1203 Camden St, just south of the Pearl (click for map) for Open Sesame!

Can true love prevail over troublesome family, scheming villains, meddling gods, and dancing pirates? Open Sesame! is a retelling of the story of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves in the musical comedy form of pantomime. 

Set in beautiful India in a time when the world was small enough to find secrets around every corner, our story follows Ollie, a hopeful adventurer seeking his fortune with the East India Company. He stumbles across a vast treasure and uses it to woo his love while beset by greedy family and deadly foes. India provides more than just a backdrop for the story, infusing the musical numbers as well. 

All song and dance will be in the style of Bollywood, India’s most famous film industry. With fast, colorful Indian music and dance, flashy fight scenes, outrageous slapstick, and audience participation, Open Sesame! fuses British, Indian, and American theater into non-stop fun.
