Synopsis: Around the World in 80 Days
Around the World in 80 Days tells the story of a wealthy Phileas Fogg who wagers his life’s fortune so that he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days in a hot air balloon.
The show follows Fogg and his valet Passepartout as they voyage from the misty alleys of Victorian London to the exotic subcontinent and the Wild West in a race against the clock.
An ensemble cast of eight will play over 125 characters in what’s described as an imaginative escapade. The cast will also take on the roles of trains and boats, present four fights and three dances, display two circus acts, and pose as an elephant.
The tour reunites original cast members, Andrew Pollard as Phileas Fogg and Michael Hugo as Passepartout. The show first premiered at the New Vic Theatre in 2013.
The show is produced by the New Vic Theatre and is Laura Eason’s adaptation of Jules Verne’s novel by the same name.
Around the World in 80 Days is directed by Theresa Heskins and has music composed by James Atherton.
