SYNOPSIS: A Fun Frolic. A Fantastic Update of the Visionary classic. To win a bet, Phileas Fogg and his acrobatic sidekick Passepartout must circle the globe and return to London inside of 80 days. Unknowingly pursued by a tireless detective convinced Fogg is a robber on the run, the fast-minded, fleet-footed pair traverse 4 continents and 3 oceans in a while-knuckled sprint. Phileas Fogg is the Victorian action hero.

NOTE: All actors must be versatile, well-trained at dialects/accents, and excel at improvisation! All characters, other than FOGG, play multiple roles and must have strong physical and comic versatility.

FOGG:30-50 year old male. Actor 5. A London gentleman circumnavigating the globe in 80 days. He is determined to win, no matter the obstacle. Charming with a quiet reserve.

CAPTAIN SPEEDY and others:late 20s-40s year old male. Actor 1. A man of many faces. Bouncing with energy.

DETECTIVE FIX and others:late 20s-40s year old male. Actor 2. A dogged Scotland Yard detective. Brawn over brains every time.

PASSEPARTOUT and others:late 20s-50 year old male. Actor 3. Fogg’s resourceful sidekick servant. Strong comedic actor. Light tumbling (with a strong handstand) required.

AUODA and others:20s-40 year old female. Actor 4. Our only female of the ensemble. Damsel, yes. Distress, no.
