Written by Jules Verne and adapted by Mark Brown, Around the World in 80 Days is full of adventure and laughs! Join us for a tale that includes stampeding elephants, raging typhoons, and runaway trains!

You will want to hold your breath as fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant race to beat the clock! Phileas has agreed to an outrageous wager of circling the globe in an unheard of 80 days…a wager that puts his fortune and his life at risk! As he sets out with his resourceful servant Passepartout, his every step is dogged by a detective who thinks he’s a robber on the run. Danger, romance, and comic surprises await you in this whirlwind of a show as seven actors portray 39 characters who traverse seven continents in Mark Brown’s hilarious adaptation of one of the great adventures of all time.
