A Gun-toting cyber-star is hardly the kind of character you would expect to crop up in the legendary tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. But a production of the magical story by Touchwood Productions Musical Company features an appearance by actress Ashleigh Jones as an intrepid Lara Croft-style figure.

Her role as principal girl Pollyanna Jones alongside her father Professor Indiana Jones joins a host of 40 characters in the fun show, which even includes a pantomime camel. The production of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, to be staged at the Athenaeum, Plymouth, from November 27 to December 1, tells the tale of good-hearted Ali Baba and his evil brother Kasim, and the discovery of a secret stash of treasure.

Comic roles come in the many faces of Olive, dim-witted duo Bubble and Shriek, and ageing belly dancer Vanilla and Delight. The shows start at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Younger children will also get the chance to join an on-stage sing-a-long with Ali Baba. Tickets are available from the Touchwood box office on 01752 223403.
