All aboard for an adventure of global proportions!

With the single-minded Detective Fix of Scotland Yard in hot pursuit, will Phileas Fogg and company manage to avoid arrest and make it home before their time is up?

The determined Fogg has bet his entire fortune that he can travel around the world in 80 days. Join him and his trusty valet, Passepartout, as they set off on a thrilling journey to faraway lands; they’ll hop from Italy to India, skip ship in Hong Kong and jump straight into dustbowl America. They’ll voyage by boat, by train, by sledge and even by elephant, on an epic whirling adventure of wonder, danger and romance!

You’ll be transported back to the most exciting age of invention in this playful theatrical extravaganza brought to life with evocative music, puppetry and circus. Join us for the ultimate race against the clock in our bold new production of this much-loved classic tale.

“Around the World in 80 Days is a story I remember fondly from my youth. Now, making acquaintance with it once more, it has made me feel like I am 9 years old all over again. It is a heart-stopping tale, packed full of exploration and wild imagination. This continent-hopping, elephant-riding, clock-ticking tale has so many fun challenges for a creative team – it is a real thrill to stage it for our audiences.” – Hal Chambers, Director
