Around the World in 80 Days
By JULES VERNE | Adapted by LAURA EASON | Directed by THERESA HESKINS
About The Show
“A feast for the eyes, ears and brain.” – West End Wilma
Eight actors, 109 characters, six trains, six boats, four flights, one storm, a circus act and an elephant take center stage when Asolo Rep partners once again with UK’s Kenny Wax Family Entertainment (Hetty Feather) to bring Around the World in 80 Days to Sarasota. When the mysterious and fabulously wealthy Phileas Fogg and his faithful servant Passepartout board the train in London in 1875, he has only 80 days to travel around the world to win a wager with his fellow members at the Reform Club. A grand adventure lies ahead in a spectacular journey that includes danger, romance and surprises with the illustrious Scotland Yard pursuing him at every turn.
Recommended for everyone 7 and up.
Simon Friend and Kenny Wax Family Entertainment present the New Vic Theatre production in association with Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester.
