Savannah Repertory Presents AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! SAVANNAH REPERTORY THEATRE will continue their 19/20 season with Mark Brown's incredibly creative adaptation of the legendary "Around the World in 80 Days" by Jules Verne, with 39 characters performed by 5 incredible actors.
Fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts his fortune and his life at risk. Alongside 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.
Directed by Broadway's Nick Corley, the cast features Britt Michael Gordon* as Phileas Fogg alongside Victoria Mack*, Andrew Ramcharan Guilarte*, Chris Soucy, and Mariana Taitan. (* indicates a member of Actors' Equity Association) This is a production that is enthusiastically encouraged for the entire family and a great way to introduce younger audience members to live theater.
