AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS

A TRANSCONTINENTAL RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK BASED ON THE CLASSIC NOVEL BY JULES VERNE

One extraordinary experience!

Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Unabashedly slapstick! Hold onto your seats for the original amazing race!

Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant Passepartout as they set out to win an outrageous wager by circling the globe in 80 days. Hot on their heels, convinced Fogg has committed a bank robbery to fund his travels, is Inspector Fix of Scotland yard who is seeking to capture and jail the intrepid travellers. Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show – one of the great adventures of all time!

An inventive romp….Something for everyone: though the characters may not yet have the ability to fly, this production certainly does.” The Stage
