Come with us on the incredible adventures of Phileas Frog and Pasper Toad as they attempt to go Around The Pond In 80 Days. Follow our intrepid heroes as they face all kinds of perils journeying over land, through water and beyond the clouds in this fabulous family fable based on the Jules Verne novel of nearly the same name.
Around the Pond in 80 Days was written as a flexible performance piece for a variety of productions. It can be performed by a large cast of children, years 6 to 9, ages 10 to 14 being particularly suitable as a leavers show for top year juniors. Alternatively, it can be performed by a cast of 8 adults with doubling. The show incorporates many various music styles to emphasize the idea of traveling. Most of the songs are chorus numbers which don't put too much pressure on individual performers, but allow the whole group to shine, particularly appropriate when young children are singing the songs.
