Around The World In 80 Days

By Jules Verne

 Ellis Productions in association with Aleksander Vass


Starring Pia Miranda, Ian Stenlake and Grant Piro, Around The World In 80 Days takes you on a high speed, mad-cap, transcontinental race against the clock! This is a joyfully frenetic whirlwind of a show, full of Victorian invention and daring deeds.

Three actors portray a cast of thousands in this madcap adaptation of Jules Verne’s globetrotting classic, bringing to life sea storms, police chases and elephant rides! The story begins with a bank robbery by a mysterious figure. Then we are introduced to Phileas Fogg, honest-looking, well-turned out and with good teeth who proclaims before his fellow members of a London gentleman’s club that he can circumnavigate the globe in a mere 80 days. He goes forth on his adventure accompanied by his newly-acquired valet, Mr Passepartout. Hot in their pursuit is Detective Fix of Scotland Yard, who thinks that Fogg is the man who robbed the bank. This mad-cap adventure quickly moves along on a succession of locomotives, steamers and hilarity.

With a style that incorporates classic farce, theatrical storytelling and madcap silliness, combined with the great age of industrial invention, Around The World In 80 Days produces a piece of theatre that will have you crying with laughter as you travel the world.
