Who hasn't heard of the famous, and very wealthy, Phileas Fogg and his plan to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days?! Jules Verne's acclaimed novel was written over 100 years ago, and is just as exciting today. Around The World In Eighty Days is brought to life (and adapted) by Laura Eason and is currently touring the UK in a live show.
The show starts off in Victorian London and follows Pileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout as they try to travel around the world within 80 days to win a bet. There are eight actors who play over 125 characters and they transport the audience on exciting adventures as they travel on trains, boats and even on a elephant.
While I enjoy a play, a family show needs to be more than that. There needs to be lots of laughs, some music, and a little bit of magic. Around The World in Eighty Days promises all those things, and more. There will be dancing and acrobatics, slapstick and wit.
Around The World In Eighty Days will be playing at The Rose Theatre Kingston from 17-22 October. It is suitable for ages seven and over. Book your tickets now for an adventure-packed family show. We can't wait to see it!
