Around The World in 80 Days - casting...

It's time to take a trip this summer...AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS returns to London at the Union Theatre this August and casting has now been announced...

This summer will see the revival of Phil Willmott and Annemarie Lewis-Thomas’ musical adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic novel, ‘Around the World in 80 Days’, coming to the Union Theatre from August 8th until September 8th 2018.

Produced by Sasha Regan (all Male Iolanthe; HMS Pinafore and Blondel) and directed by Brendan Matthew (Guy – the musical, My Land’s Shore and The Hired Man), this fun and fanciful musical will see audience members whisked away on a hot air balloon to join Phileas Fogg and his adorable madcap valet Passepartout as they race against time to do a single lap around the world in just 80 days.

With his entire fortune at stake, Phileas risks life and limb to win his bet against his arch nemesis and Big Game Hunter, Captain Fix, who will stop at nothing to thwart Fogg in his adventures.

Filled with catchy melodies, dastardly villains, high kicking dance routines, performing elephants, Nizam Cannibals, dancing dragons and a love story to boot, this is one show you don’t want to miss… Will Phileas make it before time runs out? Come to the Union Theatre this Summer, to find out…
