Summary
Freely adapted from the novel by Jules Verne, set in 1883, this delightful musical tells the story of Phileas Fogg and his servant, Passepartout, as they embark on a whistle-stop journey to satisfy a wager that they can circumnavigate the world in eighty days. With bandits in pursuit, nasty villains around every corner, and transport problems that force them to continue via hot air balloon (and performing elephant), will they make the deadline? This exciting and charming show enjoyed a successful run at the Battersea Arts Centre in November 2001. With a large cast and inventive, simple settings, Around the World in Eighty Days is the perfect choice for family entertainment.
