Y7-9 Drama: Around the World in 80 Days
Welcome to the 2019 Year 7-9 Drama Production of Around The World in 80 Days, by Jules Verne, adapted by Laura Eason.
The fabulously wealthy Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg wagers his life's fortune that he can circumnavigate the globe in just eighty days. Along with his hapless valet Passepartout, he sets out on a dazzling escapade that takes him from the misty alleys of London to the exotic subcontinent and on to the Wild West as they race against the clock on a dizzying succession of trains, steamers, a wind-propelled sledge and an elephant.
Director Pip Buining has reimagined this tale with a slight steampunk edge with a focus on the frantic movement of this tale as it travels across the world. The company will also be performing part of the show to Year 6 as part of Book Week celebrations.
The door will open at 6pm with food from some of the cities Phileas visits, and wines from local winemaker Nick O’Leary, on sale. We hope you can join us for the energetic performance of an enduring classic.
Dates: Thurs 22-Sat 24 August
Time: 6pm foyer opens for refreshments, with 7pm show start.
Tickets: Adults $15.00, students $10.00, at the door or at https://www.trybooking.com/BEROX
