Stepping Out

LAYT offers 5 more days of "Nights"


PIERRE LAURENT/SPECIAL TO THE TOWN CRIER
The cast of Los Altos Youth Theatre’s production of “Arabian Nights” includes, from left, Mia Lee (as Dinarzad), Yannick Laurent (Vizier) and Rasika Raghavan (Shahrazad).

Los Altos Youth Theatre is scheduled to present “Arabian Nights” through Nov. 3 at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.

The script uses an ensemble method of storytelling. Actors aged 8-20 from Los Altos and surrounding communities perform the major roles and also play the stairs, the snakes, the magic fountain and the cave of the 40 thieves.

Dominic Cooke adapted the play for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Stories include Shahrazad, Ali Baba, Sindibad the Sailor and The Little Beggar.

Rebecca J. Ennals said she chose to direct the play because it introduces stories from another culture.

Performances are slated 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Nov. 2, and 2 p.m. Sunday and Nov. 3.

For tickets and more information, call 941-0551 or visit losaltosca.gov/recreation/page/los-altos-youth-theatre.
