This summer sees the revival of Phil Willmott and Annemarie Lewis-Thomas' musical adaptation of Jules Verne's classic novel, 'Around the World in 80 Days'.


The show will play at the Union Theatre from 8 August to 1 September 2018, with tickets priced from £15 to £22.50 (see below for more show details and link to the Union's booking system).


If you're unfamiliar with the story, it revolves around Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout as they set forth to complete a lap of the globe in the required 80 days and thus win a £20,000 wager.


This fun and fanciful show is 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).


Synopsis


Follow Phileas Fogg and his adorable madcap valet, Passepartout, as they race against time to circumnavigate 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, Captain Fix, who will stop at nothing to thwart Fogg in his adventures.
