Additional Info

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