AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
A transcontinental race against the clock
Friday, 28 July 2017 | 1pm - SOLD SOUT & 08:00PM - 10:00PM
Starring Ian Stenlake, as you’ve never seen him before and Pia Miranda who portray a cast of thousands in this madcap adaptation of Verne’s globetrotting classic, bringing to life sea storms, police chases and even elephant rides.
Phileas Fogg is determined to win a wager that he can circumnavigate the globe in 80 days, together with his faithful man servant Passepartout.
Hot on their heels, convinced Fogg has committed a bank robbery to fund his travels is Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard, driven to capture and jail our intrepid travellers. A fabulous farce, full of daft Victorian invention, daring deeds and downright silliness.
“An inventive romp….Something for everyone: though the characters may not yet have the ability to fly, this production certainly does,” The Stage
