Customer Reviews

"This is a great script for a large group. Lots of small roles for less experienced actors."
Review by Sandy Kutyn, Kings Christian School School, Salmon Arm, British Columbia, Canada
"We had an excellent production. Very well received by our audiences and reviewers."
Review by Peter Earle, The Academy of Performing Arts, Orleans, Mass.
"Around the World is the best script I've produced from Dramatic Publishing. It is funny, well written, and full of action and drama. The cast had lots of fun, and it was very popular with the audience."
Review by Richard Bellamy, Cape Cod Academy, Osterville, Mass.
"We enjoyed performing Around the World in 80 Days. Our high schoolers have performed nine plays over the last nine years and we were told that this was our best play by far. We performed the play with thirteen students performing various parts."
Review by Bruce Barker, Faith Christian School, Lake Odessa, MI
