“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
