They said it was ridiculous but Phileas Fogg is fabulously determined as he wagers his whole fortune on the seemingly impossible. Surely no one could circumnavigate the world in just 80 days?!
104 characters, seven actors, six trains, six boats, four fights, two dances, one sleigh ride, a storm, a circus, a balloon, and an elephant will take to the Devonshire Park stage this summer in this rip-roaring telling of Jules Verne’s classic Around the World in 80 Days.
Join Fogg and his loyal valet Passepartout as they journey from London to Brindisi, Bombay, Yokohama, and even the Wild West. From the team responsible for our last summer production, 39 Steps and Eastbourne’s legendary pantomime this much loved escapade is hilariously brought to life as never before.
Starring Nicholas Maude as Phileas Fogg, Ben Cutler as Passepartout, Freny Nina Pavri as Mrs Aouda, Ben Roddy as Inspector Fix alongside Hannah Boyce, James Cooney and Harry Hart directed by Chris Jordan.
Show Trailer - Here's a taste of the fun to expect!
"Sheer theatrical delight"
"An epic adventure full of hi jinks and heart-warming moments, those 80 days are an absolute romp!"
"Brilliant acting, the cast were obviously enjoying themselves as much as the theatre goers, quite frankly I didn't want this show to end"
"If there’s one thing you can say without a shadow of a doubt about Eastbourne Theatres production of ‘Around The World In 80 Days' is that it's ambitious… This really is a play that has to be seen to be believed!"
