The Comedy Musical Full Of Smash Hits
It’s back! One of the greatest adventure stories ever, retold with an electrifying 80s pop soundtrack and a colossal comedy twist…
Meet Phileas Fogg, ‘Phil’, the most fabulous man on the London party scene. He’s got it all…the money, the looks, the girl. Then, suddenly, disaster strikes: Daddy cuts him off from the family fortune. So, in a bid to regain his wealth, he accepts an outlandish bet…to travel around the world in just eighty days!
Powered along by hit after chart hit from the nation’s favourite decade, join Phil as he boards boats, tracks trains, and handles hot air balloons in this thrilling (and hilarious) race against time. Gasp, as he outwits dastardly villains. Thrill, as he confronts the cruel sea. And sigh, when he falls in love.
From the Locomotion to the Loveshack, clap your hands, stamp your feet and sing along to a catalogue of 80s hits from the Human League, Spandau Ballet, The Proclaimers and many, many more. Now! That’s what I call a musical comedy!
Based on Jules Verne’s iconic masterpiece, Around The World in 80s Days is reimagined by writer and director Ian McFarlane, with musical arrangements by Laurie Denman.
A hilarious smash hit comedy musical not to be missed!
