Synopsis

Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Unabashedly slapstick! Hold onto your seats for the original amazing race! Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant as they race to beat the clock! Phileas Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts his fortune and his life at risk. With his resourceful servant Passepartout, Fogg sets out to circle the globe in an unheard-of 80 days. But his every step is dogged by a detective who thinks he's a robber on the run. Danger, romance, and comic surprises abound in this whirlwind of a show as five actors portraying 39 characters traverse seven continents in Mark Brown's adaptation of one of the great adventures of all time.

Customer Reviews

"This is a great script for a large groupÑlots 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
